Troston is a village in the English county of Suffolk located around five miles north-northeast of Bury St. Edmunds in the local administration District of St. Edmundsbury.
Its parish church contains rare mediaeval wall paintings including dragon-slaying and the Martyrdom of St Edmund.
A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Troston from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "TROSTON, a parish, with a village, in Thingoe [registration] district, Suffolk; 5½ miles NNE of Bury-St. Edmunds [railway] station. Post town: Ixworth, under Bury-St. Edmunds. Acres: 1,764. Real property: £2,299. Population: 322. Houses: 85. [Troston] Hall belongs to H.L. Moseley, Esq.; and was the birthplace of Capel, the editor of Shakespeare. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Ely. Value: £332.* Patron: the Lord Chancellor. The church is tolerable."
[Editor's comment: I guess Wilson didn't like the wall parintings.]
