St Saviourís Church, Brockenhurst
St. Saviour's is an example of late Victorian Gothlic architecture. The architects were Messrs: Romaine-Walker and Bessant of Old Bond St:. London. The Lord of the Manor and Patron of the Living, Mr. John Morant of Brockenhurst Park, suggested a new Church, with School, for the Parish in 1876. Nothing came of this however but some twenty years later the Walker-Munro family of Rhincfield House started to build St. Saviour's.

They first thought of building a private chapel at Rhinefield but then the Vicar, the Rev Rupert Pain, suggested building it in the village, perhaps fore-seeing its use for the Parish. It was built between 1895 and 1903. A lengthy report of the opening service in 1905, appeared in the Hampshire Advertiser. It slated that the Church was built "externally of Swanage stone with Bath stone dressings" and that the roof was "covered with Purbeck stone tiling". The interior was of "Sussex sandstone" and much of the building was "executed by Mr. Munro's own staff". LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
