2007 Church Tour

by michael - 17:45 on 12 September 2007

It was a unique treat for the people of Caston when this year for the first time,  the church tower was opened to the public.  The entry fee was £3.00 each with the money raised all going to chuch funds.

So, if you missed going up the 70 steps and then the 22 rungs of the ladder onto the roof or perhaps were not able to do so for whatever reason, you can now see on our video what we saw from the top, as well as the bell tower, the clock workings and even the trusses that hold the roof in place.

This is such a splendid video of our lovely church and panorama of our dear village. The music was so carefully chosen. I just can't get over what a marvelous job our webmaster does!

An excellent presentation and a good advert for the village!

I remember when leaving primary school, it was an annual treat for the school leavers to climb the church tower, including the 22 rungs of ladder to the top. I remember it well, even now

My ancestor, Edward Gilman, came from Caston,in the early 1600's and I am so happy to see it again (visited the church only on a cold, rainy day 10 years ago.) Thanks for the tour!
