The Thames & Medway Canal
The Thames & Medway Canal
This is a picture of the remains of the Thames and Medway Canal. The canal was first proposed as a link from Chatham to Woolwich in 1778. It was completed in 1801. The canal tunnel to Rochester was taken over for the railway some time after 1845. The canal remained open to Higham until 1934. The photo was taken from a footbridge.
