Crostwight – Name Origin

This is the beautiful church at Crostwight, albeit with its shortened tower thanks to ivy damage.

Crostwight, Norfolk. Crostwit in Domesday Book, Crostweit in 1211. Clearing by a cross.

Firstly, I love the name Crostwit, what a shame that didn’t stick for longer. Secondly, this is exactly the same meaning as for Crostwick, another Norfolk village.
