St Peter's & St Paul's, Great Casterton

It seems that there was a church here in the 11th century as a priest was mentioned at the time of the Domesday Survey in 1086. In the 12th century, the church here was a simple construction of an aisleless nave and a chancel. Most of the present structure here was built in the 13th century, being added to that earlier structure. Around 1250 a north aisle was added with a south aisle following shortly after. The nave was also extended at this time, with the clerestory and porch also being added. It is suggested that the work here took around 40 years to complete.
