A pedestrian bridge crosses over Shaw’s Creek connecting Queen St in Alton to the Alton Mill Art Centre. The village of Alton was once a thriving industrial centre with eight mills in the late 1800s. Only two of those 19th century stone mills still stand and which have been fully restored and brought back to life as the Millcroft Inn and Spa and the Alton Mill which is now a creative arts centre with studios for over 30 artists, plus galleries, a heritage museum, café and shops.
