Walton-on-the-Naze: All Saints Church
Walton's original church eventually succumbed to the erosion of the cliffs and fell into the sea around 1798, so the current church, set well inland, is not particularly old. The first church on this site was one built of brick with construction starting in 1804, and a tower being added later. However the growth of Walton as a holiday resort and the construction of the railway in Victorian times led to a rapid growth in population. As a consequence a new church built in stone was planned and built progressively as the old brick one was dismantled.

The chancel to the left and the nave in the centre were built between 1874 and 1882, and the tower on the right added from start to finish during 1896.
