Church of Holy Cross, Church Lane, Caston - Breckland

Church of early C14 origins with thatched roofs over fine polychrome and panelled medieval ceilings in the nave and chancel. The thatch to both roofs is slipping and failing rapidly. A repair project is progressing to completion with a National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship grant and is expected to be completed by summer 2020.
