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

To view them you have to trample through Border planting now, and people do.
Trouble is local Kids newly connected to the park are unaware of the stones or what they are, just as they are unaware of the parks great History.
I believe the Stones will be broken as a result

I believe that the old Rochester City Council's Depot was built on Acorn Wharf, but I don't know in what year?

The canine cemetery at Acorn Wharf where the much loved yard dogs of the Ross Foord families, who owned Acorn House and Acorn Wharf, buried their dogs.  the tombstones bear the dogs' names, ages and the dates of their demise.



As far as i can work out these have all been removed.  Does anyone know what happened to the tombstones?
