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.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Does anyone have any pictures of the Wharf that was next to Rochester Train station as you went down Furrells road near Bardell terrace and under the train bridge where the trains had a yard for leaving their lorry's back in the 60/70s Id like to know a bit more about this area but am not sure what the name of the wharf was (Furrells maybe) I know the one further along was Blue Boar wharf ,as children we used this place as a playground unsafe I know but that's how it was in those days we where careful by the river .
I always thought that it was called Furrells Wharf - it is where The Queen of the Channel was moored for the winter
