Alton – Saturday 3rd February 2018

We had a few hours to kill in the afternoon of our trip to Hampshire so we headed to the little market town of Alton to have a look round also to visit the Waterstones.  They have a Jane Austen mural commissioned when the shop was owned by Ottakers by artist Chris Burke.  Alton is a pretty little town which has a market, but sadly on a Tuesday, not Saturday, so we didn’t get to sample it!

There is a bronze sculpture – The Bear – by Mark Coreth nearby but I cannot find any information about any significance of a bear has to Alton!
