It’s a very steep walk up St. Catherine’s but brace yourself and make the effort because it’s certainly worth it for the lovely variety of independent shops and cafes.

If only more high streets were like this instead of being packed with Tescos and charity shops. This is a delight to wander in.

This area around Catherine Hill is all quaint shops selling various bits and bobs. Definitely worth a visit.

Nice little street with many different quaint little shops.
Unfortunately there wasn't anything in any of the shops that any of us were interested in really, but nice to have a look round.

This is probably one of Frome's many unvisited sots. The cobble street rising from the market place is steeped in history. Modern shops nestle in the old buildings. Many independent traders that you will not see elsewhere. The most interesting shop was the old worldly ironmongers shop at the top, on the right-hand side. This sells things that you never knew you needed. Well worth a visit.
