The name Suncroft means “a sun blessed croft”. It was named by a priest, who was walking in the croft (or field) long ago. The sun was shining so brightly on the field that he named the place Suncroft.


Long ago, there was a church down the Old School Lane and one in Carna. The church that we use today was built in 1906 and is situated in the centre of the village.
