Internal and external alterations were made to the church in 1999 and 2000, for the installation of new services and a new heating system. Archaeological monitoring of these works exposed a red and black Victorian chequerboard tile floor underneath the existing floor, along with the remains of an earlier brick pew platform and vaulted brick heating duct. The foundations of the former chalk nave walls were also identified, and indicate the former plan of the church, prior to its medieval enlargement. The remains of two possible burials within the church were also recorded beneath the floor of the north aisle. These burials were not impacted by the alterations, and were therefore left in situ. {7}{8}
