Watching Brief Area 410, Kent - Integrated Site Report


The Oxford Archaeological Unit was commissioned by Union Railways (South) Limited (URS) to monitor all earthworking operations with a potential archaeological impact within part of CTRL Project Area 350 and the whole of Project Area 410. This work formed part of an extensive programme of archaeological investigation and monitoring carried out during the construction of the CTRL.

This report presents the interim results of the watching brief covering all permanent and temporary land-take associated with construction of the CTRL, from west of the Medway Crossing to the Pilgrims Way. This includes the trace (at grade, within cuttings and on embankments), bridges and associated works (mitigation earthworks, construction sites, transformer stations etc.).

No significant archaeological discoveries have been made in this area to date.

Areas previously subject to detailed or strip, map and sample excavation were excluded from the works, as were areas of known large-scale modern disturbance (as detailed in the WSI).

The fieldwork events covered by this report are:

  • Medway Crossing (ARC WB410/50+000-51+000)
  • Nashenden Valley (ARC WB410/51+000-57+500)
  • White Horse Stone (ARC WB410/57+500-57+950)
  • Pilgrims Way (ARC WB410/57+950-58+200)

Along with Targeted Watching Brief's at:

  • Pilgrims Way (ARC WB410/57+950-58+200)
