Somerdale: Then and Now




Former Fry's employees are mounting an exhibition to record the dramatic changes at Somerdale.

Cecil Fry of the Grove, Frenchay laid the foundation stone of the office block there in 1932,

and in 2016 his grandson used the same ceremonial masons tools to lay the foundation stone of the

new St Monica's retirement home being built in the chocolate factories that ceased production in 2011.
