Halton Church
The church is dedicated to St Oswald, St Cuthbert and King Alfwald. Pevsner says that the church is "Originally Norman, though the nave NW quoins may even be Saxon. The unmoulded chancel arch, on the plainest imposts, is undoubtedly Norman. All the other features are of the 16th C or early 17th C, and the church was re-roofed in 1706.". But the leaflet "Halton Church - An Historical Guide" by Lesley Milner says that "The exterior walls of the church are not characteristic of Norman buildings. Like the Anglo-Saxon churches of the area, they are made of re-used Roman stones, taken from the camp of Hunnum a quarter of a mile to the north of Halton. More important, they do not have the thickness of Norman buildings; they are no more than 70 cm thick - exactly the same size as, for instance, the walls of the Anglo-Saxon church at Escomb, County Durham." - see NZ1830 : Escomb Saxon Church.
