Description: Come and join us for a tour around St John the Baptist church, Grade II* listed, and the final resting place of Thomas Ken, Bishop of Bath & Wells in C17. In AD 685, St Aldhelm built a small mission church 'in honour of St John the Baptist, on the river which is called Frome'. The church has evolved over the centuries, and retains a dominant presence in the town. It is a major architectural and artistic feature of Frome, unique in the diversity of its features. The external Via Crucis approach from the North East to the church is unique. Also in the church there will be a display 'Telling the story' with floral arrangements. Tours start on the hour. Light refreshments will be on sale.
