Church Surveys


CBAS Limited has carried out archaeological work at a number of churches including a Heritage Lottery funded project at Old St. Helen’s Church, Hastings.

CBAS is available for watching briefs, excavation and recording work in churches and churchyards.

A member of our team, Rachel Butler, has always had a great interest in Churches, and since becoming an archaeologist has been able to combine this interest in the fabric of churches with her archaeological practice.


Rachel is currently working on a guide to Sussex Churches.
