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

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.
