Fryerning Essex Is a small village situated just 1.5 miles north of Ingatestone. The Parish Church 'St. Mary the Virgin' on Blackmore Road dates back from the 11th century, with a 15th-century brick tower.
Fryerning is known as an area of natural beauty, hidden away in mid Essex, with big areas of woodland populated by several very large herds of deer, which can frequently be seen by walkers and cyclists.
Amongst this Fryerning is also home to some of Britain's wealthiest residence, making it onto the top 10 richest villages list in the country with homes at an average price of £1,022,000. With 'CM4' now Essex's most sought-after post code.
The village has no shops but two pubs: 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.
