Watching brief by N Shaikhley of SCAU did not reveal any finds or features of archaeological significance.
Evaluation by H Rance of SLR revealed three ditches and the remains of an infilled pond. Environmental material sampled from the primary fill of the pond suggested a Saxo-Norman date for the deposit. Saxo-Norman pottery was also recovered from one of the ditches.
Evaluation by C Russell of CBAS revealed no finds or features of archaeological significance.
Evaluation by S Ford of TVAS revealed no finds or features of archaeological significance.
Evaluation by A Taylor of TVAS. Two distinct clusters of pits and postholes were revealed. One cluster produced material dating to the Middle Bronze Age and included fragments of urns from the subsoil suggesting the former presence of a cremation cemetery in the area. The second cluster of features did not produce conclusive dating evidence. A third area of the site contained evidence for a more dispersed series of features, which were dated to the Early Bronze Age, Iron Age and possibly Saxon periods, as well as a series of undated linear features.
Evaluation by R Lambert of SCAU. A small cluster of features including pits, possible tree-throw holes and a gully was revealed in a distinct area adjacent to Send Hill. Three of these contained small quantities of possibly residual prehistoric flint, but little of conclusive dating value. However, a shallow pit and a posthole were found to contain pottery of a Saxon date. The comparative rarity of Saxon features in any context in Surrey renders these discoveries significant and the area worthy of further investigation.
Evaluation by R Lambert of SCAU. Two tree hollows, a cluster of large postholes, and a series of colluvial deposits containing notable quantities of flintwork and pottery of Neolithic/Bronze Age date, was revealed.
Resistivity survey by D Graham of SyAS over part of the former site of a Second World War prisoner of war camp. Evidence for structures, broadly correlating with those depicted on a 1942 plan of the site, was revealed.
Historic building recording by A Williamson of ASE. Two structures were recorded prior to their demolition. Both buildings were located within an area where gunpowder manufacture on the Chilworth Gunpowder Mills site had originated in the 17th century. However, later development had apparently removed any evidence of such early activity and the site and structures fell outside the area of the Scheduled Monument.
Watching brief by S Stevens of ASE revealed no finds or features of archaeological significance.
