Site of St Peter's church, Fryston
St Peter's, which stood in the gap between these trees, has been described as an unconsecrated church of wood structure and corrugated metal cladding, dating from 1896. The ecclesiastical district of Airedale with Fryston was created on 15 May 1930 from parts of Ferry Fryston, All Saints Pontefract and St Paul Glass Houghton. The church was closed in 1990 following the closure of the colliery whose workers it served, and demolished some time between then and 2014. The housing block behind the trees to the left was erected on part of the closed churchyard; the remainder is maintained by Wakefield Council.
