About Walton-on-the-Hill

Walton on the hill is a pretty village a short distance from the favoured town of Epsom and the famous "downs" racecourse.

The village is full of visual delights, it has a picturesque village green surrounded by pleasant properties, some facing on to the pretty Mere Pond. The pond is scattered with water-plants and has families of ducks and swans.

St. Peter's Church is the dominant feature of the village, this sits serenely in a beautiful wooded churchyard surrounded by old graves and tombs. Dating from the 12th century, the church possesses a wealth of treasures, there is beautiful stained glass windows, an 800 year old lead font, and fine examples of 16th century artwork.

Historically, the village was once inhabited by the Romans as evidenced by the finding of the remains of a substantial Roman villa in Sandlands Road, thought to have been lived in until around 400 AD. Other Roman relics have also been discovered in the neighbouring village of Headley.

Village amenities include four pubs, restaurants, general store, chemist shop and newsagent. There is a nearby golf course and access to the North Downs Way.

Walton is a busy prosperous village where there is always something going on. It has an annual May pageant and other celebrations.
