Church Road (West of), Singlewell, ARC CRS 98



As part of a larger programme of archaeological investigation along the route of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, Union Railways (South) Limited (URS) commissioned the Museum of London Archaeology Service (MoLAS) to undertake an archaeological excavation west of Church Road, Singlewell, Kent, in 1998 (site code ARC CRS 98). The site was field-walked in 1993 and evaluation trenches were opened in 1997. A single trench was excavated 380m long and 20m wide, parallel to and about 150m to the south of the A2. The excavation revealed several small pits or postholes and ditches. One pit and one ditch contained burnt unworked flint and possibly medieval pottery. The ditches and two possible marlpits suggest that the land was cultivated and enclosed, presumably at any date from the prehistoric onwards, although specific dating was lacking. No specific evidence for Anglo-Saxon occupation was found.
