There is no longer a Church at the abandoned village settlement of Faxton but the ground location is just visible. The surrounding Benefice takes the name of “Faxton Group of Churches”. The Church (or Chapelry) was dedicated to St. Denis and housed two bells within dual gable-ended bell-cotes.

  • 2 bells cast by Henry Penn of Peterborough in 1703.
  • Both inscriptions : “HENRY PENN MADE ME” 

The P.D.G.C.B.R. Church bells inventory published in 1938 states:- “Two in bell-cote, one cracked”.

Interestingly, it is recorded, during 1957, John Taylor and Co. utilised the metal from these two Faxton bells to cast a new treble bell for St. Lawrence’s Church, Stanwick, Northamptonshire.
