Abstract

In response to a proposed regeneration of the site of the former Betteshanger Colliery, located to the west of Deal in Kent, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a programme of archaeological recording. The first half of the report describes the results of the evaluation, watching brief and excavation, which partially revealed the foundations of three structures. It is suggested that these are the remains of Sinkers’ cottages built in the early 1920’s. The second half of the report covers the industrial recording. Almost all the surface structures were demolished prior to the current investigation. The few surviving structures were photographed and noted on a plan. Much information on the site was gained from on-site discussions with Jim Davies, a former employee at Betteshanger.
