Local history of Sittingbourne and Milton Regis

Synopsis:

Sittingbourne is situated on the Roman Watling Street, the main Dover to London road. This was the most important route in north Kent until recent times, and it determined the town's growth and development until the mid-19th century. Originally a staging post for travellers, Sittingbourne is the only town named in Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales". Through the 17th and 18th centuries, the town prospered as an important social and commercial centre. The coming of the railway in 1857 stimulated the arrival of industry. Today, of course, the railway has taken on a new role, allowing Sittingbourne to become a dormitory town for commuters. This comprehensive history of Sittingbourne and its neighbour Milton Regis - now part of the same conurbation and inextricably linked for hundreds of years - incorporates reminiscences and memories that the author has recorded down the years.

About the Author:

John Clancy, author and local historian, was born in Sittingbourne and has lived near the town for most of his life. His Sittingbourne & Milton Regis in Old Photographs was published by Sutton in 1999.
