St, Jame's, Fairburn

Fairburn was once a little known hamlet passed by without notice by the many travelers on the A1, but since the rerouting of the A1 some years ago, it is a peaceful quiet village. The church has an information board with local history by the main gate. This board talks of a WW1 soldier killed in an accident near the local pub. Whether this is the same soldier Lazenby listed below is unclear.

Four graves can be seen in this churchyard
