Watching Brief Area 430, 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 CTRL Project Area 430. This work formed part of an extensive programme of archaeological investigation carried out during the construction of the CTRL.

Project Area 430 consists of all permanent and temporary land-take associated with construction of the CTRL, from East of Lenham Heath (URS Grid 772300E / 28800N, NGR TQ 9190 4920) to Ashford (URL Grid 83500E / 20500N, NGR TR 0345 4050). This includes the trace (at grade, within cuttings and on embankments), bridges and associated works (mitigation earthworks, construction sites, transformer stations etc).

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