Significance of the results:
A programme of archaeological investigation was undertaken by Colchester Archaeological Trust at St Nicholas’ Church, Copt Hall Lane, Little Wigborough, Essex in January 2019. The work was undertaken in advance of underpinning works.
One test-pit was observed by CAT, dug against the west wall of the nave and the southwest buttress of the church. The foundations recorded in this test-pit are similar in composition to the foundation observed in the 2005 evaluation (CAT Report 350), and appear to be the original 15th-century foundations of the building. The uniform foundations in this location also suggest the south-west buttress is original to the building.
