St Andrew’s Church, Farnham

Watching brief by G Pattison of SCAU and A and D Graham of SyAS during internal alterations to the north transept, choir and crossing. Evidence for both in-situ and disturbed burials was recorded beneath the floor, in the form of vaults, gravestones and disarticulated, disturbed bone. The bases of the choir arch were also exposed, but no evidence was revealed of the remains of the earlier structure, noted in 2003 observations in the nave.

Runfold Farm

Evaluation by J Robertson and G Hayman of SCAU of the remainder of the stage 2 mineral extraction site. A small number of features were revealed that might have been related to evidence for field systems found nearby previously, and possibly tree clearance. However a lack of dating evidence precluded firm identification.

Frensham Common, Frensham

Evaluation by D Graham of SyAS, to investigate a potential barrow site, newly recognized following heather clearance in the area. On-site results were inconclusive, although the feature did appear to be man-made in origin. Environmental samples are still undergoing analysis.

Frensham Common, Frensham

Historic landscape survey commissioned by Waverley Borough Council, SCC and SyAS, and undertaken under the direction of C Currie of CKCA, to update a previous assessment of the area as an ASHLV. The work clarified a number of anomalies in the original assessment and in the SMR, and identified the inclusion of duplicated and misinterpreted sites.

Farnham Park

Following on from work in 2002, a further area of the park was subject to a metal detector survey directed by D Graham of SyAS. A further scatter of shot, probably of Civil War date and of various types, was recovered and once again there were concentrations of finds in particular places.

St Andrew’s Church, Farnham

Watching brief by G Pattison of SCAU and D and A Graham of SyAS during alterations. A number of burial vaults and inhumations were recorded below the church floor, most of which was lifted and re-laid. Evidence for the remains of a pre-12th century church was also recorded, in the form of wall footings and truncated floor deposits.
