Excavations and potential for survival of below-ground archaeology

No recorded excavations have been undertaken. The interior floor was probably disturbed in the C18th and C19th according to historical accounts. However, the basic plan of the building may have remained unchanged since the C12th and, in consequence, its interior stratigraphy may be of considerable significance.

The overall potential for the survival of below-ground archaeology in the churchyard is considered high and below the present interior floors is considered to be high.

Exterior: Largely inhumation burials, medieval to C19th. Boundaries may have importance in the development of the site.

Interior: Nave and Chancel largely undisturbed, though with upper areas possibly disrupted in the C18th and C19th; high potential for surviving medieval stratigraphy, potentially back to the C11th or C12th. Tower restored but potentially of early form.

Standing fabric of building has multiphase construction.
