As many villagers will recall, Archaeology South-East (ASE) was commissioned to undertake archaeological investigations in and around St Margaret's Church in 2008 before building work could commence.

It has just been drawn to my attention that ASE's report of their findings is available on their website at:

Anyone who is really interested in the findings can read the 60 page report by clicking on the above link. For those only mildly interested, below is a summary of the findings:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken during groundworks
associated at St Margaret's church, Angmering between the 22nd of
January 2008 and the 16th of February 2009. A total of 51 articulated
burials, two subterranean vaulted brick tombs were and two table
tombs and 39 headstones were recorded during the groundworks. All
the Human remains were handed to the church for reburial. An early
post-medieval wall possibly relating to the demolished 16th century
Palmer chapel to the north of the church was identified. Medieval
building material was also identified re-used in the heating duct and
was residual in a number of contexts Within the church a post
medieval heating duct tunnel was identified along with floor deposits
relating to phases of reconstruction of the church in post-medieval
times. A lead coffined burial of Henry Alfred Usborne, child of a Rector
of the church was uncovered.
