Alder Archaeology Ltd was commissioned by Ironside Farrar to carry out an archaeological watching brief on contractors’ trial holes in the church yard of Falkirk Old Parish Church, in advance of town centre regeneration. Two small trial holes were monitored as they were excavated. A previous cobble road surface was recorded, burial ground soil was reached but the excavations were not deep enough to disturb any in-situ burials or bottom the burial ground soil. Some small fragments of bone were reburied on site. Nothing else of archaeological significance was found.
