Caistor St Edmund Parish Council

Caistor St Edmund Church 3

A very warm welcome to your Caistor St Edmund Parish Council website.

Roman Town Picture

Caistor St Edmund (Venta Icenorum) is one of only three “greenfield” Roman regional capitals in Britain that were not succeeded by medieval and modern towns.  The ruins are in the care of the Norfolk Archaeological Trust and managed by South Norfolk Council.  It is assumed that the Roman ‘Stone Street’ runs from Dunwich on the Suffolk coast to Caistor St Edmund near Norwich.  The parish church of St Edmund’s lies at the south east corner of the old Roman Town.   Caistor St Edmund features on the Antonine Itinerary, a Roman “road map” of the routes around Britain.

Caistor Old Hall was built in 1612 for Thomas Pettus.  During the 19th century it was owned by John Spurrell (son of William Spurrell, of Thurgarton, Norfolk).  The River Tas passes under Markshall bridge, just north of the Roman camp, and then flows on towards Arminghall and Trowse.

The Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP)

The Parish Council is keen to ensure that residents are aware of the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP), and the site submissions for Caistor St Edmund so those who wish to do so can respond to the consultation (preferably online) before the deadline of 22nd March 2018 (deadline extended from 15th to 22nd).  If you can’t respond online you can ring 01603 306603 to get a General Response form or a Site Submission form.  Further details attached – Resident Leaflet Drop GNLP
