Kilsby is one of those villages through which thousands of people pass each day. It is situated on - or just off - a busy crossroads where the Watling Street (A5) crosses the A361. Lorries thunder through on their way to DIRFT (the Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal) and cars hurry through, their occupants on a variety of missions. Few people pause to look around the village and this is a pity.
Chris called in to visit a friend who has recently moved into the village and I grabbed the chance for a quick look around. I would have stayed longer but this was not the occasion to do so.
I headed for St Faith Church. So often 'God's Little Acre' is a haven for wildlife that has been hounded out from elsewhere and a churchyard visit is thus usually time well spent.
The church is approached by a driveway bordered in part by mud (cob) walls. These are getting to be quite scarce and are jealously preserved.
