Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out during auguring within the crypt to determine the extent of potential oil contamination caused by a leak from the feed line to the boiler. The church has its origins in the 14th century and is thought to be built on the site of an Anglo-Saxon church. Despite being located in an archaeologically-sensitive area, however, no significant archaeological remains were encountered.
