Following a desk-based asessment and visual inspection report undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North in 2004 (OA North 2004), it was recommended that a watching brief be carried out during any groundworks associated with the restoration of All Saints CE Parish Church, Orton, Cumbria (NGR NY 62216 08389). Accordingly, a watching brief was undertaken by OA North on 23rd June 2005 during the excavation of an exploratory trench to identify the presence or otherwise of drains on the northern side of the church.

A single trench was excavated entirely through a previous cut for a French drain or soakaway, which had been backfilled with stone rubble. No archaeological horizons were encountered during the works and there were no further recommendations for archaeological intervention.
