St Mary's Church
St. Mary's Parish Church is a Grade I listed building. It has some Saxon material and an architectural structure of the 12th century, with later additions. The square flint tower, supported by a 19th-century brick buttress, has a working ring of eight bells, the oldest bearing the date 1606.
In the north aisle is a large monument (1755) by the French rococo sculptor and bust maker Roubiliac to Richard Boyle, 2nd Viscount Shannon, commander-in-chief in Ireland, who lived at the former manor and house of Ashley Park in the parish; this was demolished and its many acres subdivided in 1920.
Also in the north aisle is a brass to John Selwyn (1587), keeper of Oatlands Park, with figures of himself, his wife and eleven children.
An unusual relic kept in the church is a copy of a scold's bridle presented to the parish in the 17th century, which is mentioned in Jerome K. Jerome's classic Three Men in a Boat.
In the churchyard there is a moment to the fallen soliders treated at the MOUNT FELIX HOSPITAL during World War I. Due to this, ANZAC DAY is celebrated there each year in April to commemorated the fallen.
On Heritage Day each year visitors are invited up the tower, climbing past the bells, for the best view in Walton!
St Mary's Church appears three times in the story of the Surrey Diggers, a group of radical soldiers who invaded the church in 1649. More details can be found here.
