Full Description

St.Giles Church and associated burial ground (extent unknown) was in use between 12th-16th centuries.

A watching brief in 2019 at no. 28 Claremont Terrace revealed several burials at shallow levels. During the assessment of the articulated and disarticulated remains, a total of twelve individuals were identified and are believed to date to the known 12th-16th century burial ground of St Giles Church. However, the style of some of the graves may indicate that the burial ground was active Pre-Conquest.
