Date of visit: 9th May 2021
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The village is approximately 10 miles (16 km) south of Gloucester, at grid reference SO750080. It lies on the east bank of the River Severn, and on the west bank of the River Frome, from which it takes its name. The village is linked by footpath to the Sharpness Canal.
There is a large village green, 22 acres (8.9 ha) in size and reputedly the longest in England. The green was known as Rosamund’s Green by the mid-17th century, apparently from the village’s association with Fair Rosamund. There is a designated Conservation Area around the green, including Tudor and Georgian houses, and the village also has a Site of Special Scientific Interest, Frampton Pools. Much of the village forms part of the Frampton Court Estate, owned by the Clifford family.
The Gloucester and Sharpness Canal runs to the west side of the village and the green has three ponds. There are two pubs on The Green: The Bell Inn and The Three Horse Shoes.
