There are some areas of concern, not least the CSO (Combined Sewage Outlet) pipes that lead to raw sewage being pumped out here (as at other points in the river) when there is too much rainwater. This is a known problem amongst much of England when old Victorian sewage systems are in place and would require significant infrastructure work to address. The Friends of the River Frome group among others are pushing for these changes, however.
There are lots of areas like this in Frome, where the green space has been preserved naturally. This is probably the closest little spot for us but Rodden Meadow and the community fields are also similar.
