Author: National Rivers Authority Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
The River Medway was opened to Navigation some 250 years ago when water-borne transport was in its heyday. Today, the river between Maidstone and Tonbridge is maintained by the National Rivers Authority as a public right of Navigation, enabling water users to experience the delightful scenery of the Garden of England from the peace and tranquillity of the river. This unique stretch of river provides pleasure for a variety of water users as well as for those who wish to enjoy the bankside facilities and riverside walks. The National Rivers Authority welcomes all users of the Navigation and seeks their help in preserving its attractions. This booklet aims to help everyone conduct their own activity in safety and to foster good relations and a spirit of understanding between river users.
