20th century


Land at Cleveland Lodge, Westhumble, Dorking

An archaeological monitoring exercise and evaluation by Paul Riccoboni, was maintained on land at Cleveland Lodge, Westhumble Street, Westhumble, Dorking, Surrey (NGR 1670 5190) prior to the construction of a housing development with associated roads and car parking (Planning reference: MO/2006/1607/PLAMAJ). Four site visits were made by supervisory staff from ASE between the 30th May 2007 and 14th August 2007. Archaeological monitoring took place along the line of the temporary road, which traversed the site.

Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut

Watching brief by S Wilson of COT during geotechnical test pitting associated with the proposed redevelopment of Princess Royal Barracks. No archaeological features were identified within the test pits although they did reveal information about the character of the made-ground across the site, particularly in the south in the area once occupied by the military railway.

Redhill College (RNIB), Philanthropic Road, Redhill

Evaluation by G Priestley-Bell of ASE identified walls and hardstandings relating to the late 18th century and early 19th century development of the site by the Philanthropic Society’s Farm School. A large, probably late 19th to early 20th century rubbish pit was recorded on the northern edge of the site. Made-ground and evidence of significant truncation relating to the 20th century redevelopment and landscaping of the site were widespread.

Riverside Gardens, Old Woking

Excavation by R Savage of SyAS on an area of collapsed ground revealed only modern made-ground, with indications of repeated episodes of infilling. A test pit excavated to the north revealed recent levelling. Owing to the depth of deposits, the natural sand/gravel was not reached in either excavation.
