The Oxford Archaeological Unit maintained a watching brief during renovation and restoration work at this church in January and February, 1995. Each stage of the work
was monitored, and written and photogrâphic records made. Background information relating to Iffley Church was kindly provided by Klara Spandl of the O.A.U.
The works within the church revealed several brick built vaults, some of which contained lead coffins. Some of the stone slabs which were lifted during the groundwork had mason's marks scored and painted on them. A shallow channel uncovered against the N wall was a part of
a former heating system. Externally the foundations of the church were revealed to a depth of c. 0.40 m, after the stone drain had been removed. It was possible to identify some of the phases of construction of the church.
