Friesthorpe • St Peter

Friesthorpe - Copyright Churches Festival*

Friesthorpe’s sacrifice during the Great War was the loss of five of eight sons in the Beechey family, and two other soldiers, such a loss for one tiny community. Admire the Beechey window, so generously given in their memory and appreciate our new path which makes access to our church so much easier.
