This is a long, winding, steep hill that climbs out of the centre of the town. It's very old & cobbled so you need to take care when walking. Both sides have small independent shops. On first Sunday in the month in Summer, when the Street Market is on, the centre of the road is also packed with small pop-up stalls. Great for shopping & meandering.

A lovely street full of a wide range of interesting shops. The hill is steep and cobbled, so be careful if it's wet!

very picturesque - such a shame we visited on a sunday when almost all of the shops were closed! we will definitely return & hopefully visit the market as well as the very interesting independent shops on the Hill.

It is a hill and it is cobbled bit it's is worth the walk. One of Frome old streets with a new character.

A hidden gem not noticeable as you drive through Frome, but climb up from Stoney Street to the top of Catherine Hill and the rewards are great. Artisan shops and cafes, restored cobbled street and quaint houses, Catherine Hill is well worth exploring
