St Botolph's church.
July 2005: a brief visual survey of the standing buildibngs seems to suggest that the main body of the nave and chancel belong to the same constructional phase dating to the first half of the 14th century and that the architectural feartues (windows , doorways etc.) are contemporary with the walls. However, there has clearly been sone major alterations including the nave east wall being replaced in brick, a new chancel arch and roof timbers. The excavated trenches provided the opportunity to record the below ground structure of the nave and chancel walls and their respecting footings. While there was some minor differences, the overall character and structural make-up was similar. The 2 test pits revealed that aswell as having a solid, toed, below ground base, the nave and chancel walls had been constructed on a trenched footing containing a layered or mixed fill of clay, flints and unconsolidated lime mortar (S1).
