As part of a larger programme of archaeological investigation along the route of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, union Railways Ltd commissioned the OAU to undertake a field evaluation of land to the south of the A2 Watling Street near the Tollgate Motel, Gravesham. A sub-rectangular ditched enclosure is likely a Neolithic mortuary enclosure or long barrow. A ditched trackway, presumed to be of later prehistoric/Roman date, was uncovered although no dating evidence was found to corroborate this supposition. A large chalk quarry of post-medieval date was found at the east end of the site, and further trenches exposed large geological anomalies.
