The River Medway has long sustained those who have lived along its banks. Collated by maritime journalist Wilf Lower, Medway Tales: Life on the Dividing River comprises a lively collection of feature articles detailing the people of the Medway and the fascinating stories that they have to tell. Some are newcomers, bringing innovative ideas and crafts, whilst others have spent their lives on the river and have a unique and valuable knowledge of it. Together they create a fascinating social landscape, combining images of a disappearing past with future hopes and aspirations that often includes preservation of traditions. Featuring many previously unpublished photographs, the evolution of life on the river is traced from the older traditional industries through to the newer water leisure activities and the development of tourism. This book is a fascinating miscellany of what was, is, and may be the future of the River Medway.
