Excavations and potential for survival of below-ground archaeology

No recorded excavations have been undertaken. The significance of below ground archaeology is likely to be very high owing to the relatively undisturbed nature of the site. The building was gradually ruined between the C18th and mid-C19th, largely robbed for its stone, though this is unlikely to have extended below ground.

The overall potential for the survival of below-ground archaeology in the churchyard is considered high-very high and below the area of the church foundations is considered to be high-very high.

Exterior:Largely inhumation burials, medieval to C18th. Boundaries will be of importance tothe development of the site.

Interior:Nave, Chancel, and western gablet represented only by footprint but significant intact archaeology is likely to survive in this area.
