An analytic survey of Dry Hill Camp 2011-2013

Dry Hill Camp is a large enclosure of probable Iron Age date looking across the Eden/Medway Valley to the northern part of the Low Weald and North Downs. It is multi-vallate and lies just within Surrey, close to both Kent and Mid-Sussex. An excavation in 1932 recovered few finds and the site remained enigmatic. From 2011-2013 a level 3 tape and compass survey to check the condition of the earthworks was undertaken and a report is now available in the pdf attached below.

Analytical survey of earthworks on Gravelly Hill, Caterham 2014

In 2014 land on Gravelly Hill was purchased by Caterham School and they expressed an interest in knowing the archaeological and historical background to their new land. The late Peter Gray had already noted the presence of earthworks within the area but access had previously been limited. As a result of the change of ownership members of the Surrey Archaeological Society undertook aa measured survey of the land within the medieval park and a small area to its immediate north.

Doghurst House, Grants Lane, Limpsfield

Monitoring by Z Pozorski of AS undertaken during floor level reduction within a timber-framed structure believed to be largely of 15th and 16th century date, with 19th and 20th century alterations, but the core of which is thought to be medieval. The monitoring revealed earlier floor layers, and the remains of a hearth constructed of peg tiles dated to the 15th and 17th centuries. Historic building recording undertaken by M Higgins of SCC during refurbishment and extension revealed the two earliest phases of its development to be c1425 and c1475.

Titsey Park, Titsey

Geophysical survey and standing remains recording by D Calow, A Hall and N Cowlard of SyAS. The geophysical survey was hampered by tree cover, but confirmed the existence of a second building to the east and suggested a series of hitherto unknown anomalies that might represent ditches, as well as indicating that demolition deposits could extend over a considerable area.
