Between the 10th and 14th November 2003, OA carried out a field evaluation in the graveyard to the north of St Leonard's church, Grendon Underwood, Buckinghamshire (NGR: SP 6772 2099) on behalf of the Parochial Church Council. The evaluation revealed a sequence of medieval and possibly late Saxon activity against the north wall of the nave. This comprises the insertion of 3 graves into a buried medieval soil horizon sometime in the 12th to 13th centuries and possibly two phases of construction for buttresses in the 14th and possibly 15th centuries. Sherds of late Saxon pottery were recovered suggesting activity of that period in the vicinity.
