Not far from the main Town Centre shopping and within walking distance of the towns railway station which boasts main line and a vintage steam and diesel service in the form of the Watercress Line stand this delightful church. Started some time after 1066 with a founding date of 1070, it has seen many alterations and expansions over the years. The oldest stonework in the church actually predates the church. The Anglo-Saxon font was discarded during a renovation in 1868 and ended up in Cirencester where it was bought back in 1934 for the grand sum of 10. The mill wheel it now stands on it a symbol of Alton's former paper industry.
