Abstract:
In 2019 ADAS carried out archaeological monitoring of groundworks for the installation of a new 11kV underground electricity cable through the historic Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent. The most significant remains observed within the cable trench were the remains of two possible wall foundations (1024 and 1025) was recorded at the base of the north facing slope where the Route levelled out leading north-west towards the existing public footpath. It is considered that these walls may represent the remains of a building shown in a drawing of Mote Park by Johannes Kip in 1719 (Swaen.com 2019). The building in question was located to the east of Old Mote House (to the left of Old Mote House in the 1719 drawing). Evidence of localised quarry activity ([1015], [1018] and [1021]) was observed in the southern part of the Route on the north facing slope and evidence of landscaping and demolition was also observed there (1003, 1006, 1010, 1017, 1019, 1027, 1028, and 1029). No archaeological remains were observed in the northern part of the scheme. The observed stratigraphy suggests there was been extensive recent landscaping at the part of the Route. The observed finds from this part of the Route indicate that this landscaping has been carried out in the last 50 years. The lack of significant archaeological features recorded during the archaeological monitoring may be attributed to the relatively limited ground impact of the cable trench and due to the impact of previous quarrying, landscaping and demolition activity within Mote Park.
