Towards the end of the 7th century, St. Aldhelm, Abbot of Malmesbury, set up a mission on the banks of the River Frome. This is believed to have been the first permanent settlement of what eventually became the fourth largest town in Somerset and now is the town with most listed buildings in the area. Much of the wealth that created the insteresting buildings came in the early days from the weaving industry. Competition from northern mills with cheap labour more or less killed that off, although some elements of specialist fabric production lasted until the 1960s. Print became a very important industry here with the closure of many mills and kept the town buoyant, and for a long time, larger and more prosperous than near neighbour, Bath.
With historic buildings in and around the town, some national monuments, some still in use, owned privately or by the local council, we often find ourselves called on in the Frome area to ensure that when the grime from traffic, bird fouling, general day to day soiling or even graffiti is removed from a treasured building, there is no damage to the often delicate stonework beneath.
From removal of old paint for a domestic redecoration project, or the intricate cleaning of stone work in a cathedral using the poultice method, you will find that wherever you are in Frome or Somerset, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.
