Frodingham was a village in North Lincolnshire, now a suburb in the north-east of Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, England.[1]

Before its development from a small village Scunthorpe was part of the civil parish of Frodingham, which also included the village of Brumby,[2] parts of the village of Crosby,[3] and stretched westwards to the parish of Gunness on the River Trent. Scunthorpe's urban growth absorbed all Frodingham parish villages and abutted the now urban areas of Bottesford and Yaddlethorpe to its south.[3]

The former Frodingham railway station was built by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway; it closed in 1926.[4]

In 1912 the Frodingham Ironworks was taken over by the Appleby Ironworks to form the Appleby-Frodingham Steel Company.[citation needed]

The North Lincolnshire Museum is located in the former village vicarage, built in 1874 on the site of Frodingham Hall.[5]

St Lawrence's Church

Frodingham Grade I listed Anglican church is dedicated to St Lawrence.[6][7] Originating from the 12th century, it was rebuilt in 1841 except for the Early English-style tower.[8] In 1916 Cox recorded a Carolean altar table, dated 1635.[8] It contains memorials to the Healy family who added several windows within the church.[9]

In 1885 Kelly's Directory reported a large temperance hall, built in 1871, that also housed a library and newspaper reading room. Chief crops grown in the area were wheat, barley and potatoes.[9]

At that time the village of Bromby (Brumby), 1 mile (1.6 km) south from Frodingham, had a Wesleyan chapel, built in 1884. Crosby, 0.5 miles (0.8 km) north, was partly in Frodingham parish and partly in Flixborough. It had a Primitive Methodist chapel, built in 1836, mines worked by the Staveley Coal and Iron Company, and a rabbit warren.[9]
