Abstract

Archaeological monitoring (test pit and watching brief) for drainage and water supply (across 6 different trenches). The main findings were related to the churchyard's extension (mainly disturbed human bone was found, and one in situ individual). There was evidence for 18th century landscaping (relating to Capability Brown), and some evidence for medieval and pre-18th century remains relating to the adjacent settlement (a small gully and a disturbed surfaces relating to a building). The latter included residual 12th century pottery, but also 16th-17th century pottery and clay pipe (along with glass, brick and tile) that was probably contemporary with the settlement remains.
