A programme of archaeological work was carried out in Bexhill-On-Sea, East Sussex to establish the presence and importance of any archaeological remains prior to and during the construction of a new road. The work involved an evaluation excavation, a watching brief and a strip, map and sample excavation on part of the road route.

The work revealed ditches belonging to a prehistoric hilltop enclosure as well as a Bronze Age field system. Other prehistoric activity was represented by finds of worked flint. A Late Iron Age-Roman rectangular enclosure ditch was also found, which contained a large amount of pottery and a single glass vessel. Evidence of later activity included Medieval and Post Medieval features such as ditches, pits and a former quarry.
