Abstract:
A total of 45m of linear trenches were cut within the proposed developmet area located to the immediate east of the present church, within the existing car park. It was designed to test the theory that the church was built on an artificial mound speculated as a former Motte or Law hill and to inform a planning decision. On balance, it appears most probable that nineteenth and twentieth century activity has wholly removed any trace of early activity from the development area, should there have been any present. The potential survives for enclosure features under the chancel, the construction of which extended the mound. However, the proposed build will only extend to the slope rising to the chancel, thus not impacting on sediments beneath the known modern made ground.
