Dyed in the Wool
A walk around Frome, Somerset, with a focus on the cloth industry in the town. We will take in some of the places and buildings linked to the weavers, spinners and dyers whose skills were largely responsible for the wealth of Frome in the 17th and 18th centuries. Along the way we will also touch on the importance of the trade to the country as a whole and some of the language and folklore associated with it.

Led by storyteller and town guide Lisa Kenwright.
