About Norton

One of the main centres of the Peasants Revolt of 1381. Several "villeins" are subsequently recorded as having been resident in the parish. Five years after the main disturbance the village was again at the centre of another, short lived uprising. The church also has some interesting medieval woodcarvings and glass. The village was recorded in Domesday as "Nortuna".
