Cawston, Saint Agnes Church, A small village, but with connections to Stone, Bronze and Iron Age. The church itself is a hive of activity on certain days. (There was a cycling club there the day I went) The church built at the end of the 14th century, by Michael de la Pole Earl of Suffolk and his wife Catherine. Robert Oxburgh is responsible for the erection of the north aisle. (An ancestor)There is a monument to James Harrison-Baker 1814 by sculptor C. Abbot (Aylsham).

Inside is a Poor Box, prominent at the entrance to the church. Roof carving galour, a rood screen, tall Font cover, Wine Glass pulpit, decorated Piscina, decorated "Misericord" chancel seats. A sign states, God spede the plow and send us ale corn enow our purpose to make at crow of cok of the plowlete of Sygate be merry and glede war good ale yis work Mad. Church Ales have given way to fetes, Caston is an agricultural church rather than a wool church. It has a splendid array of  hammerbeams, west tower, south porch, nave, north and south aisles, transept, chancel and north chancel chapel. This very fine church has a magnificent stone tower circa 1406 in four stages. It has two failings. There is no parapet and the salient angle is so small as to be hardly noticeable. But the west front is beautiful with a finely grouped window and door. The door has a deeply moulded arch with carved spandrils and a good canopied niche on either side. Above the door is a frieze of armorial shields, and the great window, with deep casement mould and the paterae string mould of the first stage returns downwards to meet the sill. There is a nice font dated 15th century with vaulted corona, and beautiful tracery over all the shaft and bowl. churchesofnorfolk by the Old Boi.
