Land to the South of the M25 at Rooks Nest, Tandridge, Surrey

Moon, Kevin Land to the South of the M25 at Rooks Nest, Tandridge, Surrey. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Oxford Archaeology (OA), was commissioned by Skanska Balfour Beatty Joint Venture to undertake recording of potential archaeological remains that may have been impacted by the construction of a temporary piling mat to facilitate the installation of permanent land stabilisation and drainage works to the south of the M25 and east of Palmer's Wood at Rooks Nest, near Tandridge, Surrey. No archaeological potential, deposits or finds were encountered during the fieldwork. Excavation to between 2.5m and 1m deep on the sloped roadside area revealed a sequence of modern redeposited clay layers used to create the motorway embankment. The underlying natural geology was not encountered at the base of the construction impact (147m aOD). The construction groundwork was archaeologically monitored for approximately 80m of the 200m long area impacted by the piling mat and piling. Three trial pits were excavated as a sample within the remaining area confirming that the modern made ground clay sequence was present throughout
