In the beginning….
The origin of the name of the village is uncertain, there are several hypotheses:
- Friche : fallow land in the middle of which we built the village
-Frigea: goddess Scandinavian of the fertility and of springs.
This last hypothesis is elegant because Fry is a area where there are numerous springs.
On the tracks of past…
Fry is a very ancient parish because the worship of Saint-Cyr and Sainte Julitte who was practised, was propagated in France at the Gallo-Roman time.
M Pigeon, inventor of the lamp and of the spirit-stove who have his name, stayed at Fry (La Pigeonnière).
The church is reshaped in the 16th century, with a rustic porch of neo-Romanic style.
Brick-built octagonal dovecote,
freestones and slates(seigniorial house).
At the hamlet of Bièvredent, dovecote.
