WHERE ROCHESTER STANDS ON THE MEDWAY, LARGEST TRIBUTARY OF THE THAMES

WHERE ROCHESTER STANDS ON THE MEDWAY, LARGEST TRIBUTARY OF THE THAMES

Three streams of the Weald one in Surrey and two in Sussex, unite to make the Medway, the fair river of Kent which flows by Tonbridge, Maidstone, Rochester and Chatham finding the Thames between the isles of Gram and Sheppey. Sheerness stands at its mouth. Cargoes in barges come down from Rochester, to which large vessels can ascend; the picturesque Thames barges ply about the wide waters of its estuary, and the two naval bases of Chatham and Sheerness add greatly to its importance.
