About Troston

A small village gathered around a crossroads and recorded in Domesday as "Trostuna". The area has been settled for about 4000 years as evidenced from the Bronze age tumuli. The Hall was once the home of the Lofft family. Capel Lofft campaigned with Wilberforce to end the slave trade, but ended his life bankrupt and had to live in one of the estate workers' cottages.

The Bull reopened in 2017 after six years of closure, but closed again in August 2018, along with the Wilde Bull brewery which operated at the pub for a short time.
