Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation by test-pitting was carried out in advance of alterations to the interior of St Mary the Virgin Church, Layer Marney, Essex which are to include the replacement of the chancel floor and the construction of an external treatment plant for a new toilet. The evaluation was undertaken to establish the depth of the existing concrete floor base and the nature of any archaeological deposits below it. No significant archaeological features, layers or finds were identified during the evaluation and only post-medieval and modern layers were encountered.
