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

Sluice Weir Lock - River Medway

Situated on the river between Yalding and East Peckham, this lock was originally built by the Medway Navigation Company in the 1740's and has been re-furbished several times since. There's a WWII Type 24 pillbox guarding it on the left bank
