Meandering through the Weald of Kent
Ending where it meets the Swale
Downs and village, through Towns and Field it's sent
While Fowl and Fish, Mammal and Man Play
Along this waterway, ancient and diverse
Your River, Your Life, Your Medway
Poem by Stephen Newton-Pearce from Rochester
Thank you Stephen for your poem about the Medway and we've been happy to use this to promote our Photography Competition.
Do you too have a poem about your time on the River, or would you like to write in with a memory of your own? We'd love to hear of your experiences and memories of living by or visiting the Navigation section of the River Medway. Perhaps you remember an incident during the great floods or would like to share you wildlife spotting experiences with us. Please email your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of Andrea and we'll try to add your stories to this page of the website. These will appear to the right hand side of this page for you to click on and read.
Please don't make your stories or poems too long and please be aware that we may have to edit, amend or shorten the articles you send in. We'll look forward to hearing from you.
