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 Cathedral.

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.
