History of Griston
The village can be traced way back to the Domesday Book.
The local Griston Hall near Wayland Wood is in folklore the abode of the wicked uncle who ordered the death of his wards, the Babes in the Wood, so that he could inherit their property. The village sign reflects the story.
The village used to be made up of houses built for prison officers that worked at the prison.
Watton and Griston Link
As part of the Sustrans Connect2 project proposals are in place to create a cycling and walking route between Griston and the market town of Watton. The new route would follow the boundary of the Watton airfield and provide a shorter, traffic free alternative to the A1075. Norfolk County Council have allocated a £40,000 contribution towards funding of the scheme. A schematic map of the scheme has been published online.
