Caston

History of Holy Cross, Caston, Norfolk.

Although there may have been an earlier foundation, the current Holy Cross church was founded in about 1300 AD, and records show a continual line of rectors from 1305.  The church is a very long, narrow building, the nave is aisleless.  The main entrance is via the west door, which seems to have been a fashion in that part of Norfolk, but is noteworthy for the beauty of it’s ogee arch.  As you enter the church it is worth looking at the local brick floor, and the romanesque font.  The tower probably dates from a similar period to the rest of the church.  

There are only 2 misericords in the chancel, and they are almost identical, and although the subject matter at Caston is an head, the style is very similar to the misericords at  Wingfield in Suffolk, Soham in Cambridgeshire, and Suttton Courtney in Berkshire.  

There does not appear to be an official Holy Cross website, but Caston does have it’s own village website.
