The River Medway

The River Medway is the second largest river in southern England after the Thames.

It was originally called the Vaga by the ancient Britons. Later, the Saxons added the syllable mad, meaning “middle”, as the river ran through the middle of the kingdom of Kent. The Medwege evolved into the modern name, Medway.

The Medway is said to divide the county of Kent into two parts : those born in West Kent – are labelled Kentish Men while those from East Kent are Men of Kent.

The river joins the Thames Estuary at Chatham, site of the Royal Navy dockyard established by Henry VIII.

The novelist Charles Dickens lived at Chatham from 1817 to 1821 and the district is featured in many of his novels.
