Illustration for Paston

The village is probably best known for its association with the Paston family, who made their home in an earlier building on the site of the present Paston Hall. The family is most noted for the Paston Letters, a collection of letters and papers, consisting of the correspondence of members of the family, and others connected with them, between 1422 and 1509, and including some state papers and other important documents. Most of the Paston letters and associated documents are now in the British Museum.

2014: A new Paston website aimed at historic researchers, schools and interested individuals. An informative and usable resource includes a 3D reconstruction of the Paston buildings in 1601
