  1. NORFOLK COUNTY COUNCIL has made a Temporary Traffic Order affecting the C546 Attleborough Road from a point 285 metres west of its junction with B1077 Carbrooke Road to a point 322 metres east of its junction with U33027 Stow Road in the PARISH OF CASTON because of works to connect a new water supply.

     The road will be temporarily closed (except for access) from 11th February 2019 to 13th February 2019 for the duration of the works, expected to be 3 days within the period.


     Alternative route is via: C546 Attleborough Road/ The Street/ Griston Road, U33100 Caston Road, C133 Church Road, C546 Thompson Road, A1075 Thetford Road/ Memorial Way, B1108 Norwich Road, B1077 Caston Road/ Carbrooke Road (Carbrooke/ Caston/ Griston/ Watton).

  2. Just days after the owners of the industrial units on Church Road were alerted by the Parish Council that youngsters had been seen playing and climbing onto the buildings, a fire broke out on Tuesday 23rd October necessitating the attention of 3 fire engines. The premises previously occupied by Griston Engineering were gutted.

    The owners have now made the entire site as safe as they possibly can and only time will tell as to what happens next, as it is obviously an eyesore. If anyone has any concerns or questions, or has any information about who might have been responsible, please contact David Barnett, Parish Council Chairman on 880441 who has contact with the owners and will endeavour to help.
