THE LOST VILLAGE OF FAXTON
Thursday, November 17th 2016
Wellingborough Civic Society warmly welcomes visitors and friends to what should prove to be a fascinating, thought-provoking talk given by Janice Harper about the lost village of Faxton and the lost church of St. Denys on Thursday November 17th 2016 in The Dulley Room at Wellingborough Museum.
Faxton, was a village situated between Old and Mawsley, with long ago footprints in the Saxon period, mentioned in the Domesday Book and last inhabited in the 1960’s. In the decades which followed visual evidence of the village could still be seen, first with tumbledown buildings and church but, over the ensuing years diminished to rubble, stones and now uneven mounds in the ground.
We look forward to meeting you!:
