“Frome's Cobble Street and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

What a fascinating array of shops and not at all overpriced as you would expect from unique shops. There is a lovely hand made natural soap etc shop called Herbs on the Hill. A really fascinating stationary/anything shop that goes on and on like a tardis once you go in and plenty more.
Although this is mainly about Catherine Hill, Frome also has more to offer. A small museum ( At North Parade )free to enter open
Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 2pm between
Tuesday 12th March 2013 and Saturday 16th November 2013.
Small but full of infomation did you know for instance in Frome ,John Webb Singer at the Frome Art Metal Works, made the statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus, the statue of Justice on the Central Criminal Court and the lions in Trafalgar Square?

Plenty of parking space as there is car parking for over 500 cars in town.

A very busy and interesting street.
This street is in the historic town of Frome, Somerset has many streets similar to this including Cheap street which has a water course flowing from St. Johns church.
