Abstract:
In December 2015 KDK Archaeology Ltd undertook an archaeological evaluation at the Church of St Mary and All Saints, Main Street, Fotheringhay, Northamptonshire, in order to inform planning proposals, and to determine a viable drainage path through the churchyard. Initially provision was made for up to eight evaluation trenches, though fewer were to be excavated should results warrant it. In the event, only four were required and these were all excavated to the west of the church. Several stone features were revealed, including a patterned pathway next to the north door and another path or wall foundation roughly parallel with the west wall. Evidence of structural demolition was also present, though no dating evidence of the associated stone spread was found. No articulated burials were encountered, though a small amount of charnel relating mainly to sub-adults was recovered from excavation close to the church wall. The trial trenching demonstrated that there is an area some 2m wide immediately next to the west wall of the church that has few archaeological remains. As such this provides an ideal location for the trench arch as the impact on archaeological remains is likely to be less here than in other previously considered areas.
