During the last hundred years or so Gravesend has grown from a small community with a population of 22,000 in 1881, to the present Borough of Gravesham with a population of over 90,000. Robert H. Hiscock's book illustrates this development of a small but busy waterside town, dependent on the Thames for much of its wealth, growing into a vast commercial and residential area, with many of its inhabitants commuting to London and elsewhere. This book celebrates the area from the chalk cliffs along the waterside from Botany Marsh and the Creek at Northfleet to the marshes at Denton. It is split into accessible sections devoted to the river, the main road, including Rochester Road, East Milton Road, Milton Road, King Street, New Road, Overcliffe, London Road, The Hill, Northfleet High Street and Stonebridge Hill, and Old Road Gravesend from the Lion Garage, which continues as Dover Road to Northfleet to where it joins the main road at the Leather Bottle. It is a journey that will delight anyone who is familiar with the area.
