The River Medway has long sustained the people who lived along its banks. It became a thoroughfare for commerce, and home to a Royal Dockyard but today many of the old industries and the dockyard have gone, and the river is quieter. Nonetheless, although fewer cargo ships moor in the once-bustling `Pool' of Rochester, the river is far from dead. New industries are growing, water leisure activities are expanding and tourism is developing. More significantly, people still work on the river - some are newcomers bringing different crafts and innovative ideas; whilst others have spent their lives here and have a unique and valuable knowledge. Together they create a fascinating social landscape combining images of a disappearing past with future hopes and aspirations - that often includes preservation of traditions. This book is a miscellany of what was, is, and may be the future of the River Medway. Collated by maritime journalist Wilf Lower, it draws together his observations over the years, recording the people and stories of the Medway.
