Alton Priors

Christianised Site


Wiltshire County Council

A concise history of Alton Priors by John Chandler, which points out among other things

- that the Ridgeway passes ludicrously close by (check out a 1:25000 OS map),

- the reasons for there being two churches almost next to each other,

- and that the bumps in the field are probably the remains of the village which has since shrunk (not barrows, I'm afraid, as notjamesbond suggests above)
