St. Mary the Virgin Staverton The church of St. Mary the Virgin at Staverton is predominately an early C14 church in the Perpendicular style with a Perpendicular C14 tower and a Decorated style C15 North chapel. The building is made of coursed ironstone and ironstone ashlar.

The east window is an unusual composition featuring the Annunciation and Crucifixion by Burlison & Grylls of London. Two of the windows in the South aisle “Faith Hope & Charity” and “Jesus walking on the Water” are probably by Heaton Butler & Bayne.

The north chapel has a brass monument to Thomas Wylmer (d1580). This is a standing monument with Ionic columns, metope frieze framing brass plate with kneeling figures.
