Landens Farm, Meath Green Lane, Horley

Historic building recording by L Wilson of AS revealed that the main farmhouse originated as a probable late 17th century, timber-framed building laid out on a double-pile plan. A few internal fixtures such as the staircase may date from this period or slightly later. An attached west wing was used as a kitchen and may have been modified from a pre-existing building, though evidence for its supposed 16th century date is speculative. A nearby worker’s cottage is probably of similar or earlier date, timber-framed and of humble origins.

15 High Street, Stanwell

Soil stripping, mapping and sampling by Z Pozorski of AS adjoining an area of excavation undertaken by PCA in 2002 (SyAC 91, 271) which had revealed evidence of prehistoric, medieval and post-medieval activity. A large, late medieval (15th century) pit, two undated pits, and two or possibly three late 18th/19th century soakways were revealed. The investigation did not reveal continuation of linear features discovered in 2002, possibly because of truncation caused by a recently demolished building.

8-10 Stanstead Road, Caterham

First phase of the evaluation of this site by Z Pozorski of AS revealed a pit and ditch. Although it may be residual, a fragment of Neolithic or Bronze Age struck flint was recovered from the pit. A subsequent monitoring exercise during development did not reveal any further archaeological finds or features. A second phase of evaluation revealed an undated ditch.
