Between November 2010 and January 2011, Oxford Archaeology carried out an
archaeological watching brief at St Mary's Church, Wendover, Buckinghamshire (SP
871 073). The work was carried out on behalf of the Parochial Parish Council during
the installation of a new suspended floor within the church.
The watching brief revealed clusters of truncated burials around the aisle pier bases and two brick burial vaults within the central aisle of the nave. Ground reduction and underpinning within the south porch revealed burials predating the building of the porch. These probably relate to the three relocated headstones adjacent to the south-west corner of the south aisle. This work also exposed two possible chalk surfaced paths leading to the south door. No evidence was found for any of the
earlier internal medieval floor surfaces, or for any earlier phases of the church's construction.
