St. Peter in Friesthorpe is basically medieval but was rebuilt in 1841 by Young of Lincoln.

Inside is a plaque in commemoration of the rector, Rev. Beechey who lost five sons in WW1.

A commemorative window for the five Beechey brothers (WW1 casualties) was created by Andrew Seddon of the Stained Glass Company Ltd and installed in Friesthorpe church in 2016.

The phrase ‘I did not give them willingly’ is attributed to their mother, Amy.
