Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out at the church of St Andrew, Church Lane, Weeley, Essex during groundworks for the installation of a compostable toilet in a detached shed in the courtyard. The site is located within the grounds of the 15th- or 16th-century church of St Andrew, which is possibly constructed on the site of an earlier church. It also lies adjacent to two cropmark complexes, one of which is thought to represent the remains of a deserted medieval settlement, and south of a findspot of early prehistoric flints. Despite being located in an archaeologically-sensitive area, no significant archaeological remains were encountered.
