Millennium Green

Local art & local apples

Fantastic views and local artwork, just minutes from the town centre.

Historically, Millennium Green was used as both a quarry and for grazing horses.

Since 2000, in the hands of the Frome Millennium Green Trust, the site has become a more natural area, home to lots of wildlife, a community orchard and one of the oldest trees in Frome!

The south-facing slopes here also enjoy the sunshine (as it comes!) throughout the year, with melting frosts a treat for walkers & photographers on sunny winter days.

Commissioned by the Trust, the site also features a number of pieces produced by local artists, making this a distinct and characterful landscape in the town.

Getting here

Depending on which direction you’re coming from, Millennium Green either slopes its way up towards North Parade; or down towards Rodden Meadow.

Things to do

  • Enjoy the views down to Rodden Meadow & the riverbanks. And the views across to Cley Hill and beyond!
  • Check out the carved picnic table and the benches, all made by Frome Craftsman Anthony Rogers
  • Find the community orchard
  • Take a more interesting route from the car park into the town centre, passing by the ancient Sycamore
  • Extend your walks – Millennium Green links up easily with Rodden Meadow & North Parade
