Excavation by N Cowlard of Church Meadow Project in an area consecrated to be incorporated into the adjacent burial ground of St Mary’s church. This revealed a series of narrow flint linear features heavily impacted on by past ploughing. The features may represent an area of hardstanding or a building platform, and are likely to be of Romano-British date. A ditch of Romano-British date was located running parallel to the alignment of Stane Street, previously identified during excavations in the churchyard. A pit cutting the ditch, lined with mortar and containing a substantial part of an amphora and two further vessels, may be evidence of industrial activity on the site. The excavation also revealed two gullies running perpendicular to the line of Stane Street, with one overlying a pit containing a bowl of 2nd century date, and an undated sub-circular flint surface within a mortared bowl that may have been a fire pit.
