News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

There was a Velocette agent in Gillingham called "Precision garage". I`m not sure in what street but I think they were also agents for James and Norman motorcycles.

Peterchall, the Burton's garage closed about two years ago and is now a car wash. The Lucas garage opposite has been knocked down.

There was a Burton's Garage in Duncan Road, Gillingham, 1950's until ???. They were specialists in carburreter parts, but can't remember if they were agents for any cars/motorbikes. They were on the left going from the station towards the bus depot, about half-way up.
