Godstone to Tonbridge

Geophysical survey by S Haddrell of Stratascan along the 28km route of a proposed replacement pipeline between Godstone and Tonbridge in Kent. Magnetic susceptibility was undertaken along the route, with areas of potential interest identified targeted with a detailed gradiometer survey. Positive anomalies, possibly of archaeological origin, within the Surrey section included linear features that may be associated with a post-medieval trackway. The anomalies were targeted during a subsequent evaluation by D Britchfield of WA.

Johnson and Clark, Staines

Excavation and watching brief by K Crouch for Staines Archaeological Unit and DOE, in advance of redevelopment, located RB levels, in particular part of the massive flint and mortar foundation of a building of the 1st century AD, the rubble from whose demolition in the 4th century filled a nearby well. Evidence for buildings from the 12th century was also recorded. (London Archaeol 3, 389)


Over 70 sherds of Beaker pottery, including both fine and coarse wares, recovered by M Russell. They probably represent occupation activity. (179)
