In November 2008 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation comprising six test pits within the land previously used as a burial ground for Zion Baptist Chapel, Calne, Wiltshire (NGR 399713 171209). The work was carried out on behalf of North Wiltshire District Council, in respect of redevelopment of the burial ground into a market square. The evaluation revealed a number of post-medieval features, including six earth-cut graves, two brick shaft graves and two stone-lined shaft graves. A dry-stone culvert, part of the original north churchyard boundary wall and three possible refuse pits were also revealed.
