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

Thanks Mikeb. Could well be as that's where we used to board for the trip to Southend back in the 30's and the freighter/ coaster is at the wharf at Bath Hard .

Thanks Jason, a very interesting article, let's hope the makers of the new film read this beforehand. A very fine photo' of the Medway Queen pre war with Rochester Cathedral & Castle in the background. I'm sure someone can tell me exactly where it is?
