Watching brief by S Nelson of EEHAS during the construction of a disabled access ramp to the Church House, in the north-west of the churchyard, revealed considerable modern disturbance, possibly associated with the construction of the building. Post-medieval glass and pottery were recovered from the disturbed deposit together with a small assemblage of disarticulated animal and human bone. The latter represents at least two individuals, one of whom had a pathological growth on the lower leg, possibly from disease or trauma.

Watching brief by R Watts of AOC revealed sections of three brick structures, all probably related to drainage provision and of recent date. Considerable truncation was recorded and although the natural, an orange/brown silty clay and gravel mix, was revealed across the extent of the groundworks, no finds or features of archaeological interest were revealed.
A magnetometer survey by R Davies of ADAS on the site of a new car park revealed two possible linear features of archaeological origin; however, the presence of significant amounts of ferrous material may have masked other archaeological features. A subsequent watching brief by S Dalby and J McNicoll-Norbury of the same unit, revealed the foundations of a 19th century gymnasium known from cartographic evidence but no other finds or features of archaeological interest. The possible linear features noted from the geophysical survey were not identified.
A magnetometer survey led by N Cowlard of EEHAS identified a linear anomaly, possibly a ditch, perpendicular to and intersecting the previously recorded east roadside ditch of the Roman road Stane Street (SyAC 101, 214). A number of further linear anomalies were recorded to the south of Stane Street.
Metal detector survey led by N Cowlard of EEHAS recovered a number of later Roman coins but all from areas of disturbed ground.
