Village school investigates Gresham's history

One of the homes of the Paston family was the castle in the north Norfolk village of Gresham. Today the remains of the castle are not generally accessible, lying as they do in the middle of a field of grain. The village primary school are taking the lead in trying to find out more about the castle; a group visited to see what can still be seen, and Peter Stibbons produced a video (click to view). Margaret Paston, with her man Daubney, was there to explain the 'battle' that took place to throw her out. The redoubtable Margaret refused to leave and had to be carried out in her chair!
