20th century


Kilmore House and Lodge, Camberley

Historic building survey by T Davies of WEED (Waterman Energy, Environment and Design Ltd). Both buildings were constructed in the period 1912–14 in the Arts and Crafts style. A number of features typical of the period, including an asymmetrical plan, extensive use of local materials and an idiosyncratic design that attempted to mimic the landscape as well as demonstrate piecemeal development, were noted. Many original internal features also survived and were recorded.

Kingswood Warren, Kingswood

Earthwork survey by L Gadsby of CA and K Page-Smith of Nexus recorded the surviving elements of the 19th and 20th century gardens. The presence of possible earlier remains associated with the woodland and rabbit warren formerly on the site was noted, including one possible pillow mound. An evaluation by T Harvard of CA recorded the footings of 19th century garden structures, but only the recovery of two pieces of unstratified worked flint suggested the possibility of earlier activity on the site.

Centred, Woking Park and former Westfield Tip, Woking

Two phases of evaluation by S Mounce of WA in in advance of flood protection, landscaping, tip remediation and redevelopment alongside the Hoe Stream. The first phase revealed a significant depth of alluvial deposits, late 19th and early 20th artefacts likely to have been washed up and deposited by the Hoe in a trench closest to the modern path of the stream, but no deposits of archaeological interest. The second phase revealed alluvial layers within all of the trenches, confirming that the site historically lay within the floodplain.
