    Frome is at the end of the taxi drivers faith trail. It is a solitary walk of faith that begins in east grimstead undertaken by shaven headed figures that chant wheretoguv continually whilst on the lone walk that should take a week during which they fast and swear allegiance to the god of meters.

    Unfortunately a lot seem to take longer than a week stating they were avoiding roadworks and took a slightly detoured route.

  19. Superb actually saw Basil Fawty..Must have been the incumbent at The George..we stayed once it was a hoot and most welcoming .

    I believe that kayaking competitions are held on the "brisk flowing river" that gives its name to the town from the old English "ffraw "meaning sparkling water, so much for San Pellegrino then.
