Folksworth is a small village just off the A1(M), about 5 miles southwest of Peterborough, England. Folksworth has a village hall, a church (St Helens) and a small primary school. There is also a preschool which operates 3 days per week in the village hall. The village's only pub (The Fox), closed down in 2013 but there local people are campaigning to get it re-opened. Folksworth also has a playing field called Folksworth Fun Park with a cricket wicket, goalposts and lots of play equipment for children. It is part of the civil parish of Folksworth and Washingley, this is in the district (former county) of Huntingdonshire in the county of Cambridgeshire.
Folksworth & Washingley Parish Council meets at the village hall on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7.20pm.
St Helen's Church (Church of England) in Morborne Road was first built in 1150 AD. The church was restored in 1850 when the chancel was entirely rebuilt and the vestry added, the north wall of the nave largely rebuilt, and a bell-cote built on the west gable. Services are held each Sunday morning in the church at 11.00 am (other than the second Sunday which is at 9.30 am), except the first Sunday in the month when there is a Family service which is held in the school hall.
'Folklore' magazine is delivered four times a year to each house in the parish.
