Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken on the groundworks pertaining to the part removal and part reinstatement of a section of the eastern churchyard boundary wall along with the removal of a mature tree bole and its root systems in the adjacent churchyard. The removal by hand of the dry stone wall fabric of a section of the eastern churchyard boundary wall, consisting of the outer and inner faces along with an internal rubble core, identified a simple deposit sequence which consisted of a graveyard soil overlying an undisturbed natural subsoil horizon. Two fragments of disarticulated human bone were recovered from the graveyard soil for eventual reburial. The growth of a mature sycamore tree bole and its root systems had over decades caused this section of the eastern churchyard boundary wall to bow outwards. This had necessitated the removal of this prior to the reinstatement of the boundary wall. The sycamore tree had probably been planted as part of the church restoration of the 1860s and this section of the churchyard boundary wall probably post-dated this planting. The boundary wall also showed some evidence of modern 20th century repair.
