Frome Valley

The River Frome and heritage estates

Our wonderful Frome Valley starts at Bristol Harbourside and ends near Old Sodbury in the South Gloucestershire countryside or visa versa.  The source is actually in Dodington Park, an 18th-century manor house estate with 51 bedrooms, owned and lived in by James Dyson and landscaped with designs by Capability Brown in 1764. Ref.

Here’s a trail of short image films showing the route area which runs through Greater Fishponds and the social media is run by various local volunteers.

“City of dreams, city of arts, city of aero since the very start. The ship of ships to iconic bridges all found near the tide of tides, feeding in to our harbour floats Bristol’s Pride”
