Within Fraisthorpe is the Grade II listed Anglican chapel dedicated to St Edmund. Originally 13th century, it was remodelled in 1893 by Smith and Brodrick. The chancel and nave are unified, and constructed of rubble and cobble. Remaining from the 1893 rebuild are the 4-foot (1.2 m) high remains of a 13th-century pier in the south wall, which Pevsner believes might be evidence of a former south aisle.
