Oxford Archaeology(OA) carried out a field evaluation at Brooklands, Weybridge, Surrey, on behalf of Daimler Chrysler UK Limited. The evaluation revealed that the present day landsurface had been made-up with dumps of redeposited natural silt, sand and debris over much of the area explored by the evaluation. This had taken place subsequent to the substantial truncation of the natural geological deposits and as a result the potential for the survival of archaeological deposits is very low, across most of the evaluated area. Where the geology was relatively untruncated (the northeast of Site 7 and Trench 27 Site 8 (Fig. 2), only one potential feature was identified and one. find was retrieved. As the feature (ditch 1800 in Trench 18) was undated and the find (a Mesolithic worked-flint projectile point in Trench 27) was residual and not in situ the archaeological potential of these areas remains low.
