Johns the Baker, 5 Badcox, Frome, Somerset, 2008 • Ghost sign from the days when ‘golden brown’ didn’t mean heroin. The Hovis sign had gone by 2011, when it was still Johns; it’s now Bath Bakery, with a nice retro logo. The house these days has a blue plaque on it, stating: ‘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”.’
