Church of St Mary the Virgin, Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire

Dalton, John and Hiller, Jon and Reeve, S Church of St Mary the Virgin, Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




In February 2000 the OAU undertook a watching brief at the Church of St Mary the Virgin, Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire (NGR SP 697 091), during the excavation of test pits prior to the installation of a new drainage system around the church. One sherd of medieval and several pieces of post-medieval window glass were recovered from deposits within the test pits. Lead window frame (cames) were also found; these are also probably post-medieval in date. A brick wall offset from the church wall may have been part of a vault, disturbed when the brick drain was constructed around the church. A watching brief on the drain trenches revealed little further information beyond the burial vault; but details of the foundations of the church were significant and while mostly confirming the known history of the church suggested that the transepts may have originated as smaller chapels.
