Abstract/Summary

Archaeological monitoring was conducted at the above location during the installation of new services. A probable large undated ditch was exposed in profile towards the southern boundary of the churchyard the location and scale of which allows the possibility that it represents part of the boundary of the medieval monastic complex. Examination of a section of the southern foundation of the nave suggested that the existing structure may have been constructed on a broader footing possibly retained from an earlier building. In the Luttrell Cemetery to the south of the chancel trenching revealed the remains of walls, floors and demolition material associated with at least two post-medieval structures, probably dwellings, that may have stood in some form into the 19th Century.
