Fryston, also known as New Fryston & Ferry Fryston, is a suburb of Castleford; it is situated in the metropolitan borough of the City of Wakefield; it was a pit village, which is why most homes in the area were homes of local miners, but Fryston Colliery, like all collieries in Castleford, has now closed.

The area around the village plus Ferry Fryston and Fryston woods is called the Fryston area, which extends to Ferrybridge; the name is believed to be derived from the name of a tribe, the Frisians, who had a settlement in the area.
