The Frome Valley
The Frome Valley
The River Frome is a river in Somerset. It rises near Witham Friary, flows north through Blatchbridge to the town of Frome and joins the River Avon at Freshford, south of Bath.
The name Frome comes from the Old British word ffraw meaning fair, fine or brisk and describing the flow of the river.
There are many weirs on the river. Several stretches, particularly below Farleigh Hungerford are used for coarse fishing and some trout fishing.
