Take a closer look

A small, quirky village with many attractive cottages located on one side of the street and yet nothing on the other, making it appear quite lop sided!

Frampton Millennium Green, situated next to the village hall and fronting the River Frome, was opened in the summer of 2000 and has proved a boon to the village ever since. On a sunny day bring a picnic and watch the ducks as they glide along the tranquil waters.

Events held on the green include an annual village fete and annual tug of war competition across the River Frome.

Close by is Harry’s Wood for a pretty woodland walk under the shade of the trees. Especially nice in springtime.

Historically, Frampton was an ancient British settlement and some Roman tessellated pavements incorporating one of the oldest Christian symbols to be found in the country were discovered 150 years ago.
