Summary. Two test pits were sunk against the inner face of the retaining wall on the south side of the churchyard to establish the depth of the wall foundation in relation to present churchyard ground level and pavement level outside. No burials were disturbed, although there was a quantity of loose human bone which was reburied in the excavated pits at the end of the work.
