Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Oakford Archaeology in January 2014 St Hieritha's Church, Chittlehampton, Devon. The site lies immediately to the west of the church, in an area between the tower and south side of the nave. The church is grade I listed and has 'unquestionably the finest church tower in Devon' (Hoskins 1954). Dedicated to St Hieritha, a local woman martyred in the 6th century AD, the church was entirely rebuilt in the late 15th/early 16th century. The building was substantially restored during the 19th century. A watching brief was maintained during works associated with the construction of a new water main and associated drainage works. The new toilet was located inside the tower and a small diameter hole had to be drilled, below-ground, through the base of the west door to the tower. The new drain then headed south-west. The water main followed the same course before heading back in a south-eastern direction and connecting to an existing main adjacent to the porch. The work involved ground reduction extending to a depth of between 0.3-0.9m.
