History
The east wing was added later, and the Canon Landon Memorial Clock later still- Canon Guy Landon, Rector of Alverstoke from 1907-47 had the sad task of comforting the bereaved of the parish through two world wars and witnessed the historic separation of the parish from the Ancient Diocese of Winchester in 1927 when Alverstoke became part of the newly formed Diocese of Portsmouth and the ties of more than 1,000 years were severed.
