Lyndhurst church embarks on archaeological dig

A New Forest church is starting an archaeological investigation which it is hoped could reveal clues about medieval settlements in Lyndhurst.

The dig at St Michael and All Angels will remove a 5ft (1.5m) deep and 16ft (5m) wide earth mound to allow a new driveway to be built.

Any fragments of artefacts could give an insight into previous settlements and religious activity on the site.
