In October 2005, Oxford Archaeology carried out an evaluation on land adjacent to the existing graveyard of St Michael's Church, Cumnor, Oxfordshire (NGR SP 459 041). The work was carried out on behalf of Cumnor Parish Council, in advance of a proposed extension to the churchyard. The proposed extension lies immediately west of the site of the Benedictine retreat of Cumnor Place a quadrangle complex of the early 14th century which succeeded an earlier grange held at Abingdon Abbey. Structural remains found during the evaluation may relate to the early foundations of the abbey grange. Evidence for the 14th century groundworks associated with the later building were also recovered.
