Fradwell was first mentioned as part of the Colwich parish in the Domesday Book, where it is listed as Frodawelle or Frodeswelle, and it is likely to have been an Anglian settlement established during the Dark Ages.

The village received a church of its own in the 13th century, when the Chapel of Saint James The Less was established. The chancel survives, but the main part of the church was rebuilt in 1764. Fradswell became a parish in its own right in February 1851, and further refurbishment, including the building of a new nave and the installation of stained glass by William Wailes, followed soon after.

Fradswell now has a wonderful hall, and a community Serenity Garden all set within the newly sited Village Green. A wonderful place to meet and socialise.
