Frome's Industrial Heritage

Frome Museum has recently undergone an expansion plan, having taken over more of the building in which it has been housed since 1983.

The current Exhibition at Frome Museum is the art of JW Singer & Sons Ltd of international renown that originally specialised in church ornaments, plate and memorials, and progressed to statuary and war memorials. The firm is still based in Frome and manufactures metal pressings.

John White, one of their apprentices, left and set up his own business that eventually became known as Somerset Smithy and examples of their work are shown.

Another apprentice moulder, Leonard Stockting, went to work for Morris Singer, now in Basingstoke, and examples of his work are shown.
