Archaeologists are due to return to a Telford church almost a year after a medieval priory was first unearthed.

The remains of the building, thought to date back to the 13th Century, were found in the grounds of Wombridge Church last August.

A team of volunteers are to help archaeologists uncover the medieval floor.

Reverend Kevin Evans said he hoped as much of the original building would be conserved as possible.

Under plans agreed by the church and English Heritage, vulnerable stonework is also expected to be stabilised.

Almost 50 local volunteers have signed up to help with the ongoing project, which is being supervised by archaeologist Martin Cook.
