Fryerning is a small village situated approximately 1+1⁄2 miles (2.4 km) north of Ingatestone in Essex, England. The parish church of St. Mary the Virgin on Blackmore Road dates back from the 11th century, with a 15th-century brick tower. It has a memorial stained glass window to the murdered politician Airey Neave, unveiled by his cousin Penelope in 1985. An ancient English Yew, found to the west of the church and over a millennium old, is thought to be one of Essex's oldest trees.
Fryerning is located in mid-Essex, and has several big areas of woodland populated by several large herds of deer, which are frequently seen by walkers and cyclists.
The village has no shops but two pubs: The Cricketers and the Viper, the latter becoming particularly busy during its biannual beer festivals. The population of the village is included in the civil parish of Ingatestone and Fryerning.
