Abstract:
Thames Water is currently proposing an extension to its already established sewage treatment works (STW) located on the southern bank of the River Thames at Long Reach, Dartford. Long Reach STW is centred on NGR TQ 55352 76690 (Figure 1). The site covers an area of c.29ha although only three small areas within the site are proposed for development. Very few traces of activity exist in the surrounding area dating from the Prehistoric right through to the Medieval Period and no known archaeological evidence exists for the site of the STW. However, considerable post-Medieval activity is recorded in the area immediately surrounding the site and Long Reach STW has been fully operational since 1875. The cartographic evidence shows the site within the Dartford Marshes and as being undeveloped until the STW were established. The expansion of the works and the progression of the sewage treatment processes throughout the years prior to PPG16 and due to permitted development rights will have caused significant truncation to any archaeological deposits or features. It is therefore likely that only buried remains relating to the sewage works will be encountered. Taking the currently available evidence into consideration, the proposed development area can be assumed, at this stage, to have a 'low' potential for the recovery of archaeological evidence. However, the provision of a watching brief, if health and safety considerations permit, would allow for any undisturbed ground encountered during the development to be assessed and monitored for archaeological remains.
