Between 1998 and 2004 Kent County Council carried out a survey of 46 small towns in Kent as part of English Heritage's Extensive Urban Survey initiative. The towns do not include Canterbury or Dover, which will be more appropriately dealt with by means of an Urban Archaeological Database. Within the survey reports, the origins and development of each town were described and surviving historic assets identified. The reports also considered the potential for the survival of further archaeological remains and suggested a number of important research questions. The reports will also help with the conservation and sympathetic management of the surviving historic buildings and archaeological remains by means of a planning advisory document.

Presented here are the 46 final reports. For more information on the Kent Extensive Urban Survey please contact:
