Village, free entry
Fazeley was formed in 1842 after Robert Peel bought the Drayton Bassett estate in 1790 and made his home at Drayton Manor. The Peel family developed the district outside their park land by building cotton-spinning mills and the necessary cottages for the workers. In the church there are memorials to William Tolson who was a cotton spinner in Fazeley until 1876 and his descendants still own the Tolson Mill. A new marina and a British Waterways Information Centre have brought fresh life the town.
