"WALTON, a parish in the hundred of Whitley, county Somerset, 2½ miles S.W. of Glastonbury, its post town, and 6 N. of Somerton. The village is situated on the main western road from Exeter to Bath. The soil is clayey, with a subsoil of blue lias stone. Many curious fossils have been found in the limestone quarries. The living is a curacy, annexed to the rectory of Street, in the diocese of Bath and Wells. The church is dedicated to the Holy Trinity. The register dates from 1671. There is a National school for both sexes, at which a Sunday-school is held. The Wesleyans have a chapel. The Marquis of Bath is lord of the manor and principal landowner."
