|With its name possibly
derived from 'Forest Lea', Frosterley has a current population of
approximately 800, and is another dales village of Saxon origin (Weardale).
The ancient chapel of St. Botolph dates back to the 14th century and is a
registered ancient monument. The village is renowned for its Frosterley
marble, some of which was used in the Chapel of Nine Altars in Durham
At the present time, I have been unable to trace any more information or any pictures on the internet. In due course I hope to source information and to take my own pictures.
