4 Boys Hall Road, Willesborough, Kent - Building Report


No 4 Boys Hall Road. Exterior view from the north-west.

The Oxford Archaeological Unit (OAU) were commissioned by Kvaerner Construction Ltd. to undertake a programme of archaeological recording at the Grade II Listed building at 4 Boys Hall Road, Willesborough, Kent (NGR: TQ 6026 1412) in advance of demolition. The survey was carried out between 10-12th May 1999.

The building would appear to originate, in the early 19th century, as a three cell, in-line single storey brick built structure. The nature of the primary building remains uncertain though the identification of a primary fireplace within the central room would appear to indicate a domestic function. This is perhaps supported by the evidence of a property survey undertaken in advance of the construction of the railway which describes the building as a 'lodge', related to No. 2 Boys Hall Road. In c.1890, the building was extended by the addition of a first floor of timber stud construction clad externally with decorative banded tiles and providing three additional rooms. Additional heating was provided in the central, first floor room and by the construction of a second stack to the southern part of the building with fireplaces at ground and first floor levels. During the 20th century, a single storey, pentroofed bathroom extension was appended to the north elevation.
