Frodingham

Description and Travel

Frodingham was both an ancient village and parish in Lincolnshire about 18 miles north of Gainsborough. Both are now part of the modern city of Scunthorpe. The parish lies across the north of Scunthorpe. The parish of Flixborough lies to the north, Gunness to the west and Appleby to the east. The parish contains the ancient villages of Bromby (Brumby), Crosby, Frodingham and Scunthorpe and covers about 5,770 acres.

Crosby is a township situated in Frodingham parish and spilling over into nearby Flixborough parish. Gunness is a township also partly in Frodingham parish.

Frodingham is, for all intents and purposes, the northern suburb of Scunthorpe. If you are planning a visit:

Politics and Governance

The North Lincolnshire Council website tells us:

"Frodingham is one of the five villages which were incorporated to form the town of Scunthorpe in 1936 and Frodingham was originally the parish in which Scunthorpe lay. The ironstone which is abundant in the area eventually led to the growth of iron and steelmaking during the 19th century."
