Gillingham

Gillingham, in Kent, sits on the River Medway. The town, with a current population in the region of ninety thousand, did not come into prominence until the late Middle Ages, when its value as a docking and shipbuilding centre was realised.  The Royal Dockyard, which Gillingham shares with neighbouring Chatham, dates from the time of Queen Elizabeth 1st. By the early eighteenth century, the dockyard was regarded as one of the finest in the country. Nelson’s flagship Victory was built here. Gillingham is also home to the Royal School of Military Engineering and the Royal Engineers Museum. The map below shows the features of the town of Gillingham as it was in the mid twentieth century.
