Can you Help.

Finedon’s Dutch Doll, c. 1930 Is a wooden effigy, holding a Bible in one hand, and a scroll bearing the words “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES [jOHN V. 39]” in the other. It represents a Charity schoolgirl of 1792, and used to stand over the front door of the school, but was taken down, and kept in the school for many years. After the school’s closure, it was mounted on the west wall of the Church.

Finedon, a large village or indeed small town of Saxon origin, is situated in Northamptonshire, the county justly famed for its Spires and Squires. Life in Finedon is characterized by intense community feeling and local loyalties. Finedon is a place of deep roots and proud self-conscious identity.
