Aslacton, Saint Michael's Church.



Aslacton, Saint Michael's Church. The village of Aslacton has been one in Norfolk long before the Domesday Book of 1086, its origin originally spelt Oslactuna, or Aslactuna, meaning Oalac's village. It was sufficiently busy to be granted a weekly market in 1263. At Crostwight, Asiac in name is mentioned on an early bell, an inscriptions says "Aslak Johes Johem ,e notavit" a custom of baptising a bell. probably means, Isaac Johns made me. In Historian Blomesfield's time, there was a glass in the east window depicting an infant in a cradle. (This refers to a story that was popular, about a baby being left at a church gate. He is supposed to have done very well in later years and had become standard bearer to King Edward III. It is said that he returned to his roots and refounded this church. If the story is true, some of the 14th century features owe their presence to him). Like a sentinel looking out from the hill to a pleasant countryside stands a round weathered tower from Norman England, this described by Arthur Mee in his Norfolk version of book King's of England. He went on to say, it had George and the Dragon above its doorway and mentions too the David and Goliath pulpit carving. Which pointed out to me could so easily be off of a Kast, a Dutch piece of furniture. Disabled friendly, no toilet.
