From the rear side cover: Skirted by the river, Willow Vale (formerly known as Pilly Vale) is one of Frome's most attractive streets. Nearly all the buildings shown on a map dating from 1813 can easily be recognised today. Then it was a busy industrial area employing around 100 people, mostly in the manufacture and dyeing of woollen cloth. Today it is a quiet residential backwater. This book traces the changes which have taken place over the past 200 years, and tells the story of some of the people who lived and worked here. Chapters include:
