Little Fryup Dale

A glorious evening. The west side of Little Fryup Dale basks in the last rays of the setting sun. The name Fryup derives from the Anglo-Saxon pagan goddess Frige and hop meaning a small valley (link). So Little Fryup Dale means the little dale of the small valley of Frige. This double descriptive name is not uncommon. Esk means a stream or water so river water. Another word derived from Frige is Friday – Frige’s day.
