The Parish Church of All Saints

In the heart of the Vale of Pewsey are the twin churches of Alton Priors and Alton Barnes. All Saints is a dignified building with a wide nave, a 12th Century chancel arch and a pleasant west tower. Inside the church is a brass plate to William Button showing the gates of heaven; in the churchyard, stands a yew tree said to be 1700 years old. Sadly, the church is no longer in use.
