"YOUR WELLINGBOROUGH"

Best Overall Winner: Virginija Cepulyte


Welcome to Wellingborough Civic Society

Wellingborough Civic Society has its origins in 1972.  It was set up to try to save the Lyric Cinema from demolition when the Swansgate Centre was being built.  Other allied groups have successfully saved the Tithe Barn after its fire, and another group saved the facade of Hatton Hall.
   The Society was relaunched in 1979 with Mr Peter Gadd (dec) as Chairman, succeeded in 1989 by Mrs Judith Thompson, then Mr Bob Townson in 2001.  Current Chairwoman  is Mrs Shena Krupin. President is Reverend David Saint.

"A CIVIC SOCIETY IS:

- a friendly society
- a concerned society
- an active society

 NOW IS TIME TO:

- get involved 
- find out what is going on in your high street
- discover more about the work your local society does
- get on to the streets
- help make our towns work"

 GRIFF RHYS JONES, President of Civic Voice

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.

Museum Meeting

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.

The site can be visited via public footpath from Mill Lane, Old. We invite you to come and listen to this talk which will once more help to weave or even embroider, yet another portion into the metaphorical historic tapestry of our own county, Northamptonshire! The talk will be followed as usual, by refreshing tea and biscuits where ‘dunking’ is positively encouraged.

£1 Members
£2 Non-Members.

We look forward to meeting you!:
