This house, built c.1600, sheltered James Scott, Duke of Monmouth, from 28th-30th June, 1685, when Frome people 'called him King as confidently as if he had the crown on his head'. After years of neglect, Monmouth Chambers was restored by Mrs. D. Brown, M.A., M.B.E., of Bristol, in 1992. Assisted by Frome Historic Buildings Trust, Mendip D. C. and English Heritage.
