Fryerning is a village in mid Essex. It is situated just 1.5 miles north of Ingatestone. The Parish Church is St. Mary the Virgin in Blackmore Road. It dates from the 11th century, with a 15th-century brick tower.
The village has no shops but three pubs: the Woolpack (a restaurant rather than a pub these days), the Cricketers and the extremely popular Viper, which is almost always crowded with walkers and locals, and becomes particularly packed during its biannual beer festivals.
Fryerning is known as an area of natural beauty and has big areas of woodland populated by several very large herds of deer, which can frequently be seen by walkers in the woodlands.
