Introduction

The East Sussex aggregate resource project was funded by English Heritage from the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF). The survey area comprises the historic county of East Sussex and focuses on five key areas of aggregate resource:

  • Folkestone Sand (including Plumpton and Novington area)
  • River Terrace Gravels (Ouse Valleys)
  • River Terrace Gravels (Cuckmere Valleys)
  • Storm Beach Gravels (Crumbles, Eastbourne)
  • Storm Beach Gravels (Rye Bay)

The broad aim of the project was to provide a consistent understanding of the historic environment across the areas of sand and gravel aggregate resource, including areas of past, present and future aggregate extraction, in order to inform a range of decision-making and interpretation.
