Bishops Frome (pronounced Froom) is a large village which lies in East Herefordshire with the River Frome flowing through the middle.    The Bishop part of the name came from the fact that the Bishop of Hereford was Lord of the Manor at one time – the Manor House, known as Court Farm, is sadly no longer in existence but it was adjacent to the Church.

Hops were the major crop around Bishops Frome and one of the two inns in the village was built in the 1800s to cater for the hop pickers who arrived every year.
