River Medway

Availability: Out of stock

The River Medway travels through the highly populated areas of Gillingham, Chatham, Maidstone and Tonbridge, among a number of other smaller towns and villages. Married to the Thames, the Medway has a rich and varied history. Ancient sites are plentiful along the River Medway; Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman evidence can all be found. Two military battles have also been named after the river: the Battle of the Medway during the Roman invasion of Britain; and the Raid on the Medway, which took place during the second Anglo-Dutch War.

Today this heritage is celebrated with the Maidstone River Festival, which has been running for over thirty years. The River Medway is also used by many for recreational activities, including clubs and societies who use the water for paddling and other water sports. With all the Medway has to offer, including pubs, walking routes, wildlife, sites of historical interest and flora and fauna, this river is a delight for anyone who embarks upon its fabulous waters.
