It appears that the name Caston comes originally from the Old English of Cattstun but the earliest reference of the name, when it was shown as Catustuna, is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086. Now read on for something a little more up to date..........

We are sad to announce the passing of John Barnes in November 2019. John was a very good friend of this village and was kind enough to allow much of his books, 'A History of Caston', to be reproduced on this website. More specifically we must also thank John for kindly giving permission for many of the photos reproduced on the Photo Gallery page. John was brought up in Caston and there was very little history about the place that he did not know.
