As part of a Local Heritage Initiative for the Woodland Trust the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council undertook a desk based study and the production of a site management plan for the archaeology of Joyden's Wood, Bexley, Kent (TQ 5011 7165). Hogg's survey of the archaeological features of the wood in 1935 still remains the most significant work to date. The project has determines that much of the archaeology is poorly understood and in need of further research and investigation. Management recommendations have been made to preserve and improve the interpretation of the surviving archaeological features within Joyden's Wood, chief amongst which is the Faesten Dic, an early Saxon defensive dyke and Scheduled Ancient Monument. Other archaeological features within the wood include rectangular enclosures, sunken trackways, lynchets and deneholes.
