Abstract

On the 1st and 2nd of November 2006, OA carried out an archaeological watching brief at the Church of St Peter's, Iver, Buckinghamshire (NGR: TQ 0500 8130). The work was commissioned by Iris Preston in advance of a proposal to remove the existing floor of the chancel in order to carry out essential repairs. The watching brief revealed the sleeper walls for the 17th century bow pews, the alterations caused during their replacement by the choir stalls in the 19th century and the disruption caused by the insertion of the underground boiler room, also in the 19th century. No evidence for the Anglo-Saxon apse was observed and little evidence for the presence of burial vaults under the undisturbed parts of the chancel floor.
