Parish Church, Walton East

History[edit]

Walton East was formerly constituted a part of the ample possessions of the commandery of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem at Slebech, to which establishment it was given by its Norman proprietor, Walter de Wale, from whom it derived its name Wale's town, or Walton.

Owen in 1602 placed it on the English side of the language boundary, but by the 19th and 20th centuries it was a mainly Welsh-speaking community.

St Mary's Church[edit]

The church, dedicated to St. Mary, consists only of a nave, without either tower or spire.
