Search on the internet for Thames and Medway Canal. From Strood to Higham it was tunneled through the North Downs, built to shorten the journey from London to Chatham for military supplies which also avoided them having to enter the Thames Estuary. It did not exist for very long as a canal, at first it had a railway line laid alongside the canal across the towpath supported by timbers set into the canal and then the railway took it over completely.

conan. Many thanks for this map, most interesting as I didn't know there was a canal from the Thames at Gravesend to the Medway at Strood. I now live in Cheshire, so my local canal system around Marple is of particular note, especially the history.
