As part of an extensive programme of environmental mitigation measures associated with the construction of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, a series of archaeological investigations have been commissioned by Union Railways Limited (URL). The Museum of London Archaeology Service (MoLAS) has undertaken a number of these archaeological field evaluations along the route of the rail link. The site, Area of Neolithic Potential West of Tollgate, covered an area of 9.3 ha across the slopes of a dry valley, under arable crop at the time of the evaluation. It lies some 4km to the south of Gravesend, immediately to the south of the A2 and west of the A227. A Neolithic polished stone axe was picked up in the area in 1929 and a recent surface find collection survey and geophysical survey have identified the north-western area of the site as having potential for Romano-British cut features.
