Item Details

During the summer of 2021, Gorgon Stone Conservation was employed to perform what they thought to be a simple paint stripping job on a Georgian building in the centre of Frome town in Somerset, only to discover three different layers of old signage underneath. The company carefully removed the paint to reveal a wonderful glimpse of some of the former lives of this unusual curved property, situated at 1 Market Place (formerly known as 25 Bath Street up until its renovation).

This 40-page A5 booklet is packed with fascinating information on each of the businesses and people who lived and worked in this corner of Market Place from the 1700s to modern day. Beginning with the well-known local COCKEY family at 24 Bath Street and extending into 1, 2 and 3 Market Place it covers nearly 300 years of history, complete with contents and index pages, illustrations, photographs, maps and newspaper articles.

This history and genealogy booklet is a must for anyone with a connection to Frome.
