Brown, A., 2015, St. Mary's Church, Mary Tavy, Devon: Results of an archaeological watching brief (Report - Watching Brief). SDV359791.

An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by during works associated with the repair and rebuild of the existing churchyard boundary wall at St Mary’s Church. The groundworks exposed a sequence of made ground deposits behind the retaining boundary wall. These layers are likely to have been deposited during the later 19th century when the churchyard was extended. No human remains, articulated or dis-articulated were exposed by the works and no pre-modern finds were recovered.
