Writing the Future

South Kilvington Primary School

St Wilfrid’s Church in South Kilvington dates from the twelfth century, but it was heavily restored in the nineteenth century. The church has windows from the thirteenth century and some stained glass. Some of the pews in the west end of the church were carved by the Rev. W. T. Kingsley who was the rector of St Wilfrid’s from 1859 until 1917.

Children from South Kilvington Primary School visited St Wilfrid’s with creative writer John Wedgwood Clarke and staff from The Laurence Sterne Trust. Afterwards, the children wrote about their experience of the church and the things it made them feel and imagine. You can read some examples of their work by following the link at the bottom of the page.
