An evaluation of 39 trenches, commissioned by Union Railways Limited, was carried out by the Museum of London Archaeology Service in August 1998 at Beechbrook Wood, north-west of Ashford, Kent. The evaluation explored the area north-west of a site excavated in 1997, ARC BWD 97. Fourteen of the thirty nine trenches revealed archaeological features, most of them were ditches and drainage but there were also some pits. Apart from a few late Mesolithic/Neolithic type sherds and flints, the majority of the material retrieved was of late Iron Age to early Romano-British period. Several 12th century building material in form of peg tiles came from the plough-soil.
