Alton is a historic market town and civil parish in the East Hampshire district of the English county of Hampshire. at the 1991 census it had a population of 16,584 and is administered by East Hampshire district council. It is located on the source of the River Wey and is the highest town in Hampshire and South East England. It also is home to Treloar College, the National Specialist college for Young Disabled People. The town is twinned with Pertuis in France, and Montecchio Maggiore in Italy.The town is famous for its connection with Sweet Fanny Adams.
The town of Alton began as a Roman settlement known as Vindomis. In 1086It was recorded in the Domesday Survey and was notable for having the most valuable recorded market in the Domesday Book under the name Aoltone.
A Roman road ran from Chichester to Silchester and there is evidence of a Roman posting station at Neatham near Alton, probably called Vindomis, and a ford across the River Wey. Centuries later, a Saxon settlement was established in the area and a large 7th century cemetery has been discovered during building excavations. It contained a selection of grave goods which included the Alton Buckle which is on display in the Curtis Museum, and is considered to be the finest piece of Anglo Saxon craftsmanship found in Hampshire. The buckle was found in the grave of a warrior, it was set with garnets and glass and has a silver-gilt body.
The River Wey has its source in the town, and the name Alton comes from an Anglo-Saxon word aewielltun,meaning farmstead at the source of the river.
In 1001 Danish forces invaded England, ravaging, plundering, and burning, and spreading terror and devastation. When they reached Alton, the men of Hampshire came together and fought against them. About 81 English were killed, including Ethelwerd the King’s high-steward, Leofric of Whitchurch, Leofwin the King’s high-steward, Wulfhere a bishop’s thane, and Godwin of Worthy, Bishop Elfsy’s son. Danish casualties were higher, but the Danes won the battle and fleeing Englishmen took refuge in Winchester.
The Treaty of Alton was an agreement signed in 1101 between William the Conqueror’s eldest son Robert, Duke of Normandy and his brother Henry I of England. While his elder brother was away on the first crusade Henry had seized the throne. Robert returned to claim the throne, landing in Portsmouth. The two brothers met in Alton and agreed terms which formed the Treaty of Alton. Part of the main street through Alton is called Normandy Street, probably reflecting this event.
A battle was fought in Alton during the English Civil War. A small Royalist force was quartered in the town when on 13 December 1643 they were surprised by a Parliamentary army of around 5,000 men. The Royalist cavalry fled, leaving Sir Richard Bolle and his infantry to fight. Outnumbered, the Royalists were forced into the Church of St Lawrence, where Bolle was killed along with many of his men. Over 700 Royalist soldiers were captured and bullet holes from the battle are still visible in the church today.
Altrincham is a market town within the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford, in Greater Manchester, England. It lies on flat ground south of the River Mersey about 8 miles southwest of Manchester city centre, 3 miles south-southwest of Sale and 10 miles east of Warrington. As of the 2001 UK census, it had a population of 41,000.
Historically a part of Cheshire, Altrincham was established as a market town in 1290, a time when most communities were based around agriculture rather than trade, and there is still a market in the town today. Further socioeconomic development came with the extension of the Bridgewater Canal to Altrincham in 1765 and the arrival of the railway in 1849, stimulating industrial activity in the town. Outlying villages were absorbed by Altrincham’s subsequent growth, along with the grounds of Dunham Massey Hall, formerly the home of the Earl of Stamford, and now a tourist attraction with a deer park and three Grade I listed buildings.
