Friesthorpe • St Peter

Friesthorpe - Copyright Churches Festival
This peaceful, rural and quiet parish church looks out over original Lincolnshire farmland. But it has seen a lot of history since 1285, one of the harshest stories would have been the loss of at least 7 men in WWI, 5 of whom came from the same family. Study our stained glass window which depicts their story and watch their tale unfold in our walls.
