Notes: The following description is taken from the church website. 'Frilsham has a delightful little church hidden away at a bend in the road. Its most significant feature is its circular churchyard, an indication of an Iron Age pagan site. There is nothing left of the Saxon Church built here to commemorate to holy events of St. Frideswide's life, but the present building is of 12th century date'.
