Thames & Medway Canal

The Thames & Medway Canal was built in the early 19th Century, creating a direct navigable waterway between the Thames at Gravesend and the Medway at Chatham. The canal was never a success. A railway was built over part of its route, through a tunnel east of Higham, but the section from Higham to Gravesend remained in use until the 1930s.

The Thames & Medway Canal Association was formed in the 1970s to preserve the canal as a recreational facility. Their website, which describes the canal in greater detail, is here: LinkExternal link
