Summary. It is proposed to build an extension on the north face of St Peter's church, outside the north door. A 10m-long evaluation trench was excavated north-south through the middle of the proposed site. Grave cuts were located at between 700mm and 400mm below present churchyard level. These were sealed by a blanket of disturbed soil. The foundations of the north aisle wall were found to be modern masonry over a concrete foundation. There was a considerable amount of residual Roman material from the evaluation.
