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

It is likely to be that way as there were a lot there, thanks anyway.  It is good to see the photos!

Hi, I assume this is Mill Road area?

Thank you for your recent additions, they are fascinating!

In 1988, a subsidence in the back garden of a house in Gillingham turned out to be a shallow tunnel. It is belleved that WW1 Royal Engineer tunnellers used this area for practice until they went to France.
