River Frome Power Walk
During Big Green Week 2016 we held a guided walk along the River Frome from Eastville Park to Frenchay Measuring Station. We looked at how the river had been used in the past to generate power for the many mills along the river. We even had the unexpected treat of seeing the wheel at "Snuff Mill" turning. We also looked at the weirs and discussed how they can be harnessed to provide electricity today.
