    6 Quirky Facts About Alton

    1. Alton Hoard
      In 1996, 256 Roman coins (each around 2cm in diameter, or roughly the size of a 2p coin), plus a gold ring and gold bracelet were found on farmland just outside Alton. Dating back to between 50 BC to 50 AD, the coins were found in two separate spots, four days apart by a pair of local metal detectorists and were valued at around £350,000. Kaching!
    2. Saxon Warrior
      As well as Roman settlers, Saxons lived in the area. A 7th century cemetery was discovered including the grave of a Saxon warrior with a particularly ornate belt buckle which, along with other finds, can be viewed at the local Curtis Museum. In the 10th century the Anglo-Saxons of Wessex fought the Vikings at the first Battle of Alton in which 81 men of Wessex were killed by the victorious Vikings.
    3. Jane Austen
      The writer grew up in nearby Chawton, 1 mile from Alton and it’s here she wrote 5 of her novels. There is a heritage walk going past sites that Jane Austen would have known in her youth and possibly shaped some of her earlier work. The route ends at the former Austen family home.
    4. Battle of Alton II
      In 1643 during the Civil War, royalist forces of cavalry and infantry were attacked by 5,000 parliamentarian troops. The Earl of Crawford fled, taking the cavalry with him and left 700 infantrymen to face the music. They were driven back to St Lawrence Church where their commanding officer and most of his men were shot and killed, the rest were taken prisoner. The church doors still bear the marks of musket balls and it is considered to have been a particularly gruesome fight and one of the “most savage encounters” of the war.
    5. Hop Hop Hooray
      The warm climate and good soil create perfect conditions for brewing hops in the region. Which in turn leads to an area good for brewing beer. There has long been a rich tradition of breweries around Alton and today you can sample some great, local micro-breweries and craft beer. Cheers!
    6. Sweet Fanny Adams
      The colourful phrase stems from the sad tale of 8-year old Fanny Adams. In 1867 Fanny was murdered and her body cut into pieces and scattered gruesomely through a local hop field by local solicitor’s cleck Frederick Baker. The sheer horror of the crime made it national headline news and in typical dark humour, the Royal Navy referred to their new tinned meat rations (which were deeply unpopular) as the remains of ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’. Today the term is often used to mean sweet nothing at all (owing to the shared initials with another colourful slang term).
