News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

The Brook Chatham

Older Forum Members may remember, as I can, the northern, or Great Lines side of the Brook, having a raised pavement several feet above road level. This I believe was called Smithfield Bank. I once read, or was told, I can't remember which, that this had originally been a waterfront. Incidentally old photos I have seen show the name of the thoroughfare as 'Brook' - no 'the'. Can't honestly say I've looked recently to see what it's now called.
