Palm Sunday 29.3.15 with Bishop Alan Wilson and Jack the donkey

Our organist, Christine Wells, and Charles Gray and Harry Sloper received Maundy Money from The Queen at Christchurch Cathedral, Oxford 28.3.2013

  Recently some of the stained glass was repaired and the panel behind the altar had to be removed to replace part of the east window. It revealed that the back wall of the church has beautiful tiling which presumably went right across the wall, although only the central upper part could be seen. It is assumed the tiling was put in when the church was first built as it matches the design of the floor tiles.

The Village

The village is located on the eastern side of the Hambleden Valley and sits on the edge of the plateau which descends down to Skirmett.

Frieth conservation area lies at the centre of the village and is split into two distinct cores - an eastern area which has many tiny traditional cottages and The Yew Tree Pub, and a Victoriana dominated western zone stretching up from the village green. The church, school and village hall are all adjacent to the village green.

Frieth Village Hall and School

On the bottom part of the big east window, again normally hidden by panelling, is the inscription 'In honour of God and St John'.
