1000 Years of History. St FAITH'S CHURCH, Kilsby, Northamptonshire, England.

1000 Years of History.

St. Faith's Church, Kilsby, Northamptonshire, England. This old Church reveals its fascinating detail and beauty when viewed enlarged.

Kilsby's church - now dedicated to St Faith but with an earlier dedication to St Andrew (as revealed by wills dating from the c15th/c16th) and perhaps an even earlier one to St Denys (c12th) - was originally founded in the early 1100s as a daughter chapel of the neighbouring parish of Barby. The two villages still share a priest to this day, and there are close links between the churches in the two communities.

A spiral-bound booklet is available documenting one thousand years of history of the church and chapel in Kilsby:

'A History of the Church in Kilsby', (c) Gren Hatton 2004, 38 pages, illustrated
