In September and October 2014, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an
archaeological watching brief at St Mary's Church, Church Walk,
Ambrosden, Oxfordshire (NGR: SP 6030 1941). The work was
commissioned by PBA Designs on behalf of the Incumbent and Church
Wardens and was carried out during the installation of a wheelchair
accessible disabled WC extension and the digging of service trenches in
the churchyard.
Eighteen earth cut graves were revealed within the foot print of the WC
extension and a further 28 were uncovered within the service trenches.
From these, 44 skeletons (33 adults and 11 juveniles) were excavated.

burials were of post-medieval date. The remainder (25 burials) were
possibly medieval. No archaeological remains of the earlier church were
