Full Description

The churchyard at the Church of St Martin is depicted on the 2nd edition 25 inch Ordnance Survey County Series map. The church it serves has its probable origins in the late Saxon period (see PRN 41234), and it may be that the churchyard dates to this period as well. {1} Two redeposited sherds of 13th to 15th century medieval pottery were recovered from a topsoil deposit in the churchyard in May 2007, during archaeological monitoring of drainage replacement works. {2}{3}
