Westenhanger Castle (North Of), ARC WGC 97



As part of a programme of archaeological investigations along the route of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, Union Railways Limited (URL) commissioned the Museum of London Archaeology Service (MoLAS) to undertake an evaluation comprising seventeen trenches situated in c.5ha. of land 4km to the north-west of the centre of Hythe, Kent. The area of investigation was bounded by the M20 motorway to the north and by the existing London to Folkestone Railway to the south. Open farmland lay to both the east and the west of the evaluated area. Medieval features were located towards the eastern end of the site. Much of the western half of the site was on a shallow west facing slope and contained no archaeology.
