Santon is a depopulated village located near Santon Downham in Norfolk, England.[1][2] Moated earthworks and other remains of the medieval village are a scheduled monument.[1]

The village church of All Saints' was rebuilt from ruins in the 17th century by Thomas Bancrofte, the sole parishioner at that time.[1]

The site is adjacent to the Forestry Commission's St Helen's picnic site.[3]
