Middle Walton.

Middle Walton - The area between Lower Town and Overtown, the boundaries are a little indistinct now, as there has been much housebuilding over the years.
Views in and around the central and western stretches of Shay Lane in Walton.

Grove House, visible from Shay Lane but located on The Balk, (see picture below) may have been built around the 1830s, or perhaps parts date back to the late 18th century.
Henry Clarkson, the railway surveyor, (see Walton - A Brief History), had an office attached to farm buildings standing on the site of Grove House. (1)
