Paston Heritage

Costumed talks – and other opportunities to meet the Pastons

An opportunity to meet the most significant figures in the Paston family and hear their stories is being offered by PHS chair Dr Rob Knee through a series of costumed talks. He has already done a number of these talks and they have been much appreciated. He has created a website through which you can get a look at the kinds of figures he portrays at https://meetthepastonscostumedtalks.wordpress.com.

Rare wall painting to be reconstructed digitally

A rare medieval wall painting of the Last Judgement in Paston Church will be digitally reconstructed in an exciting new project for which funding has been obtained from the Norfolk Coast Partnership. 

We intend to use expert advice and use the reconstructed image to support a community workshop where artistic responses, in ceramics and textiles, will be produced. Local crafts people will be involved.

Make the Paston Treasure shine!

The Paston Treasure – the historic painting commissioned by Robert Paston, Earl of Yarmouth, in the 17th century – has been selected by Norwich Museums to launch their first ever crowdfunding project. The aim: to re-gild the frame of the picture and in their words "to make a Norfolk treasure shine".
