Folksworth, Cambridgeshire

Folksworth is a small village just off the A1(M), about 5 miles South West of Peterborough, England. For years it remained relatively isolated, with only a village hall, a church (St Helens) and a pub (The Fox). However, in recent years it has expanded with two new housing developments. Folksworth has a new cricket wicket installed and has four goal posts on the playing ground; there are plans to get more in the field.
