 Fryup Church

Fryup church in the Esk valley, the minister in the 19th century was Canon Atkinson from Danby parish. We had queries about this church in Fryup and now following researches have found this reference: ”Fryup Church, 100 yards east of Stonebeck Gate farm house, was built in 1871 by the Dawnay family employing Mr Boyes of Stonebeck Gate. There was no stained glass as the views from inside the church were very fine. It was not consecrated and was demolished in 1965. There was a photograph in Rev. Sydney Smith’s Book of Remembrance of 1926. In the 1930’s Lady Downe drove from Danby Lodge up little Fryup to Evensong at Fryup Church, returning by Great Fryup visiting tenants.”
