The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

North Frodingham

The B1249 road passes through the North Frodingham with its Main Street lined with houses, farms, cottages, farm buildings, the Village shop and two public houses namely The Blue Post and The Star. In the Market Place, (where the main street branches off to Brandesburton) can be found the Village Cross. The present one is believed to be the second on that spot and was erected in 1811. The cross is suffering badly from traffic pollution and the modern day elements it has to face.

Also on the Main Street outside the Village School, can be found the War Memorial which reads, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends".

The Village Hall and Play Area stands at the back of the Main Street as do all the new properties that have been built so it does not encroach on the setting of this pretty village.

The road narrows and there is a sharp turn where on the right standing on a rise is The Church which is dedicated to St. Elgin. It was heavily restored in the 19th Century although the original Norman Font remains. The perpendicular tower has a niche around the top, which is also evident in the exterior north wall.

Past the church, round another bend and over the river and you reach Bridge Farm then its out onto the country road as you leave the Village behind.
