Medway local history and archives
Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre is the place to visit
for anyone researching the history, geography and people of
Medway. We cover Rochester, Strood, Chatham,
Gillingham, Rainham and surrounding villages and communities,
including the Isle of Grain.
Due to the imminent move of Medway Archives and Local Studies
Centre to new premises in Spring 2017 we are unable to consider any
potential donations at this time. If you are considering making a
donation, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org (for the
attention of the archivist/librarian) from July 2017 and we
will advise on procedure.
