Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Oakford Archaeology in April 2013 St George's Church, Shillingford St George, Devon. The site lies immediately to the north of the church, in an area between the tower and the north transept. The church is grade II* listed and probably started as a domestic chapel before being enlarged in the late 15th century by Sir William Huddesfield, Attorney General under Edward IV. The tower and the north transept date to this period, while the remainder of the building was substantially rebuilt during the 19th century. A watching brief was maintained during works associated with the construction of a new foul drain and soakaway. The new toilet was located inside the tower and a small diameter hole had to be drilled, above-ground, through the base of the tower. The new drain then headed north-west before connecting to the soakaway and heading back in a north-eastern direction. The work involved ground reduction extending to a depth of between 0.3-0.8m in an area where there was no evidence of surface-marked graves. The works exposed the remains of three graves. Although no finds or other dating material was recovered from the grave fills they pre-date the large-scale ground reduction at the rear of the church. A single 19th century headstone survives in this area, located on top of the original ground surface, some 1.1m higher than the path. A possible context for this activity might be the large-scale re-construction of the church in the mid-to-late 19th century.
