The graffiti was found during construction on the Government’s controversial HS2 project. Archaeologists say the etchings are associated with the warding off of evil spirits. A series of lines radiating from a drilled hole were unearthed on two stones.

Historians believe the markings are from the 12th century, and have labelled them as “witches’ marks”.

Work to dismantle the forgotten place of worship and excavate the land around it will continue through to next year.

Mr Court, lead archaeologist for the high speed rail scheme, said the work on the line was revealing “years of heritage and British history”.

He said: “Discoveries such as these unusual markings have opened up discussions as to their purpose and usage.”

Historians and activists alike claimed the route will uproot hundreds of years of history across England.

The Woodland Trust yesterday said it was “shocked and upset” after a pear tree, thought to be more than 250 years old, was cut down to make way for the line.

HS2 will cost an estimated £98billion, although costs have skyrocketed at every stage from inception to construction.
