Alton, All Saints (30K)

Alton: All Saints

Foundation laid by Selborne, Lord High Chancellor of England -
"Let all the earth keep silence," is the message on the face;

Across the street, in meadows long since disappeared from vision,
they built the spire in sections and then hauled them into place.

Now see the hurly-burly, busy people spending money
pass the steeple in a hurry on a never-ending chase.
