Limehouse Wharf is part of the large development land of Rochester Riverside.

On the left is the River Medway. Chatham can just be seen across the river in the middle.
Rochester Riverside
A 74-acre (30-hectare) brownfield site between the River Medway and the railway line is being developed with high-quality high-density housing. Up to 50 homes per hectare will be built.
The site will also contain two hotel, health centre, primary school and office and commercial spaces.
The site has accommodated a wide variety of industrial, commercial and maritime activities since the beginning of the 19th century but has become largely disused in recent years.

River Medway
The 70 mile long river starts at Turners Hill, at the West Sussex border, and through Kent to meet the Thames Estuary. It travels through many major towns, including Tonbridge, Maidstone, Strood and Rochester. The river has many locks from Tonbridge to Allington, where the river becomes tidal. Boats can navigate the river up to Tonbridge. At Yalding there is a short diversion along the Hampstead Road Canal, whilst the river goes over sluices and below the Tywford Bridge.
After floods devastated Tonbridge in 1968 a substantial flood barrier was built in 1981 on the Medway at nearby Leigh, to protect the town.
