Project type: Archaeological evaluation by trial-trenching
Significance of the results: neg
An evaluation by two trial-trenches has revealed an absence of archaeologically significant features or remains on the site of a proposed graveyard extension to the east of the churchyard at All Saints Church, Rayne, Essex.
Peg-tile fragments present in the ploughsoil were the only find potentially associated with the medieval/post-medieval manorial complex located to the north-west.
