Frome: The Town That Cured Loneliness

Frome:
The Town That Cured Loneliness

Show Notes

If you are lucky, you live in the South West of England, one of the country’s nine official regions, where Stonehenge is located. It is the place of origin of Devon cream teas, cheddar cheese, and Cornish pasties. The population: 5.6 million people. If you are really fortunate, you live in the county of Somerset with its rolling hills and the home of Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The population in that county: 560,000. But you’ve really hit the jackpot if in the county of Somerset, you are a resident of Frome, a town built on the eastern edge of Mendip Hills. Population in Frome: 28,000.  The number of lonely? Perhaps zero.
