The OAU was commissioned by Union Railways (South) Ltd to conduct a field evaluation of land situated to the east of Boxley Road, Boxley, Kent. The work was conducted between 16th and 26th March 1999.
Twenty evaluation trenches were excavated. The only archaeological features discovered comprised a small number of shallow ditches mostly concentrated toward the west end of the site and a linear-irregular feature of uncertain function. The only finds recovered consisted of small fragments of post-medieval tile, burnt flint and four sherds of redeposited later prehistoric pottery. A large majority, if not all, of the ditches appeared to be post-medieval in date, and their sterile fills suggest that they were most probably associated with drainage and field boundaries.
