In Janaary 2001 the Oxþrd Archaeological Unit (OAU) undertook a watching brief at St Leonard Church, Watlington, Oxfordshire. During the installation of a new floor within the church, a west-east aligned inhumation and a bríck structure were partially exposed - the inhumation was left ín situ as no further impact would be made.
Evidence for the refurbishment of the Church in 1877 was also recorded in the form of brick floor supports and a deposit of lime mortar. Following the reduction of the
existing path from the south porch to the lynch gate, a number of burials were recorded, two of which were excavated and re-interred príor to the deposition of
hardcore for the new path. The remainder were left in situ as they were only subject to minimal impact from the ground reduction.
