Walk & Talk -The Sack of Frome

with David Lassman

Code: SU602Time: 10.00-13.00Length: 1 dayStarts: 30 MayDay: MondayCost: £15.00Venue: Cheese & Grain


In the 1960s and 70s many areas of Frome were earmarked for demolition, thus making way for modern construction at the cost of lost heritage. This three-hour 'talk & walk' event begins with a presentation that reveals the official thinking and legislation behind the wanton destruction of this Somerset Market Town, along with the organised protest that sprang up to ultimately put a stop to its completion. The second part of the session then heads out into many of the areas most affected. Led by well-known local historian and author David Lassman.
