Sittingbourne Through Time provides a detailed insight to this unique town. Straddling the old Roman road between London and Dover, the town’s position on this ancient route made it a stopover in which to refresh travellers and their horses. By showcasing modern and archive photographs side by side, the progress over the last century is apparent. From the railways to the barges, the author perfectly documents this quaint and quirky town.

After the First World War heavy industry remained important, but there was an increasing emphasis on secondary manufacturing and services. Old derelict brickfields became new commercial estates; commuters to London found property affordable and electrification of the railway track made their daily journey easier. Now the population of over 50,000 expects an enhanced town centre and shopping facilities. Whether the reader is a life-long local of Sittingbourne or a tourist, there is something for everyone within this fully updated version of Sittingbourne Through Time.
