Kilverstone, Saint Andrew, Church, There is much William Morris in this church, in the way of stained glass collaborations, Morris a friend of a past village manor owner. morris 1834-96 was an architect, painter, designer and poet he revolutionised the British taste in furnishings. In 1906 the church was thoroughly restored at the expense of Josiah Vavasseur esq. Lord of the Manor, the cost being in the region of £2.500. The chancel roof formerly boarded with deal, was now stripped, a new one of oak with hand made red tiles from Bracknell replaced it! The Nave roof which was mainly constructed with Scotch Fir was found to be riddled with worm, so this too was replaced in English Oak. A new pulpit was made by Hubert Miller, around that pulpit, the words, "I am the resurrection and the life" Also in the church choir stalls are the words, "Love one another". A listing of rectors for Kilverstone show in  The Revd Edward C. Brooks, MA BD. booklet, "A Short History of the Parish of St Andrews. in 1978 is one George Bolders, it is in fact Boldero. A relation. (Presented by the King) There is the village Peace Memorial, on it are the words: There is some corner of foreign field, that is for ever England. The grief that lingers and pride that burns, All that love means and honour can express.
Kilverstone, Saint Andrew church, west tower, south porch and nave. This church has a circular tower which looks Norman. but I have a suspicion it is pre-Conquest. The masonary is stratified, it is low, but has a large circumference. The south doorway is Norman with one engaged shaft. Restoration has left nothing inside. The organ is built or constructed by Norman & Beard Ltd of London. There is a memorial to Thomas Wright 1775 by sculptor J. Athow.
