Abstract

In June and July 2013 Oxford Archaeology (OA) undertook an archaeological investigation at St Dunstan's Church, Cranford Park, Hillingdon, Middlesex (NGR: TQ 1016 7818) during the construction of a new vestry. The investigation observed deep deposits of churchyard soil together with associated grave cuts. These had been sealed below spreads of construction debris probably originating from the rebuilding of the nave in 1716, the 19th century restoration and the construction of the old vestry in the early 20th century. Evidence for the occupation of the nearby Manor house in the form of domestic debris dating between the 13th and 17th centuries was recovered together with a piece of worked flint suggesting prehistoric activity in the area, but no evidence was observed for any earlier phases of the church's construction or for occupation of the site prior to the church's construction.
