The Museum of London Archaeology Service undertook an archaeological evaluation on the site of Leacon Lane, to the south of Charing and to the north-west of Ashford, between the 27th of July and the 3rd of August 1998. The evaluation explored the area north-west of a site evaluated in 1997, ARC BWD 97, and forms part of a larger programme of archaeological investigations along the line of the future Channel Tunnel Rail Link, the aim of which is to assess the effect of the construction of the new railway upon the cultural heritage. Apart from natural geological deposits one archaeological feature, a pit with a burnt fill, was encountered in trench 3241TT. The only other disturbances below topsoil were caused by several ancient tree boles and a number of recent land drains.
