You may know of the book "Five Parishes – Their People and Places" published in 2004 and its sequel, the Five Parishes Journal published in 2006. Both cover the history of this village and our neighbouring villages.

The original book is out of print (though CD's can be bought and the contents are all available on-line). Copies of the 2006 Journal are still available and published this month is a second Journal. It has 76 pages of fascinating local history articles on Castor, Ailsworth, Marholm, Sutton, Upton, Stibbington and Water Newton.

Copies of the new journal cost £7 and the earlier journal costs £3.50. Both are available from Jo Morris at the Cedar Centre beside St Kyneburgha's Church, Castor .
