Church of St. Helen, Great Oxendon.

Northamptonshire county border village.

This is another linear village, running not north to south as you might reasonably expect it to, following the main A508 road, but infact it actually runs east to west.

Great Oxendon & Lilbourne are the only two  towers in the Guilsborough  Branch that  do not contain  clocks.

Benefice:- Part of  The Faxton Group of Churches.

P.D.G.C.B.R. Guilsborough branch.
