Shalden is a small village, reached by pleasant footpaths across the fields from Alton three miles away to the South East. Its old Saxon church has gone and the present one dates from the nineteenth century, built of flint with Bath stone dressing in the Early English style. It also possesses a fifteenth century font of considerable merit.
