Name:An Archaeological Watching Brief at the new Helicopter Landing Site, Shoreham Airport, West Sussex (Phase 1)
HER Ref:MWS11396
Type of record:Monument

Designations - none recorded


An archaeological watching brief was undertaken at Shoreham airport with the aim to identify archaeological remains pertaining to the history of the airport or deposits relating to the medieval salt industry.
The watching brief identified two notable linear features. The first was to the north of the site. This was thought to be a former road/taxi way possibly utilised during the Second World War and subsequently made redundant during the post war period. The second linear feature to the southern end of the site was believed to have been dated post-medieval and possibly represented an early double drain or a rutted and repaired track from the 19tht century.
