History[ edit ] The Medway area has a long and varied history dominated originally by the city of Rochester and later by the naval and military establishments principally in Chatham and Gillingham. Rochester was established on an Iron Age site by the Romans ,  who called it Durobrivae meaning “stronghold by the bridge” , to control the point where Watling Street now the A2 crossed the River Medway. Rochester later became a walled town and, under later Saxon influence, a mint was established here.

Geography[ edit ] Tonbridge and Malling Borough covers an area from the North Downs at Burham and Snodland in the north to the town of Tonbridge in the south. The River Medway meanders north-east through the borough towards the Medway Gap , having in the west of the area received the River Eden. The castle-passing Eden Valley Walk is also mostly in this borough. The district was created on 1 April by the merger of the urban district of Tonbridge, together with Malling Rural District and the civil parishes of Hadlow and Hildenborough from Tonbridge Rural District.
History and architecture[ edit ] Ancient times[ edit ] The area has been occupied for thousands of years. The Neolithic people left behind much evidence: Bronze and Iron Age finds are also plentiful. So too is Romano-British: The immediate district of Tonbridge is omitted from the Domesday Book ; however most other settlements in the Borough are included.
Castles were built at Tonbridge, Allington and West Malling in the 13th century. Malling, Aylesford and Tonbridge were built: Aylesford Priory on the banks of the Medway, was built in the 13th century.

Was the LMS too big? Frederic Stansfield In his reply to my earlier letter about the size of the LMS September issue , Doug Landau November issue makes many interesting points describing the company’s engineering innovations. But two of Landau’s examples show how engineering developments within the LMS were subordinated to business issues. LMS management’s rejection of electrification proposals, because of insufficient return on capital, is unsurprising when neither the scheme nor the one linked London with a major city such as Birmingham.
Also, the belt repair system to which Landau refers represented the development in Britain of “scientific management” techniques. As he indicates, this system had the business aim of reducing repair times and costs. Letter writer would agree in general with Landau’s observation that the Southern Railway was the most forward looking of the ‘Big Four’. However, in my previous letter I compared the LMS not with its British contemporaries but with other European railways, which received more government support.
Britain’s railways, including the LMS, did receive very limited government finance in the s. Landau does not address the question ‘Was the LMS too big?
What’s On In Berkshire
Dr Nick Reed, a senior human factors researcher who led the project, found that those who use their smartphones on the move routinely spend up to 60 per cent of their time looking down at the device instead of focusing on the road ahead, compared with those without phones who spend just 10 per cent of the time, on average, looking away, for instance to check the speedometer, satnav or in-car entertainment.
Police usually only report collisions where someone has been injured, and mobile phone users often slow down to compensate for their unsafe behaviour, which means their actions cause less severe crashes — leading to a lower level of reporting. Where official statistics fail to illuminate this growing safety problem, the TRL study has, largely, shone a light. By electronically monitoring 28 young drivers aged 18 to 25 with an array of CCTV cameras inside the Honda Civic simulator, Dr Reed found that reaction times to visual and auditory stimuli — such as those experienced on a real-life journey — were nearly 38 per cent worse while they were using smartphones.
“*BRUTALLY HONEST POST ALERT* Apparently, today is #WorldMenopauseDay (wtactualf!), so I’m using this as an excuse to talk about the Unspoken. In my experience, it’s probably still the biggest taboo in discussing our breast cancer treatment and its side-effects.
Four months on, the cyclist who took the video, YouTube user uphillfreewheeler, has got in touch to give us an update. Speeding BMW driver nearly hits cyclist head-on after overtaking car At the time of the incident in June, in which a BMW driver overtaking another vehicle at speed almost hit him head-on, he said: In his update, he revealed that it turned out to be a hire car, and that Thames Valley Police told him they had tracked down the driver in September, but never prosecute motorists for careless driving based on third party camera footage.
So, no prosecution — but a motorist who in future will act more carefully around cyclists and other road users, you’d hope. One day hopefully we will run out of close passes and near misses to report on, but until that happy day arrives, Near Miss of the Day will keep rolling on. If the video is on YouTube, please send us a link, if not we can add any footage you supply to our YouTube channel as an unlisted video so it won’t show up on searches.
Please also let us know whether you contacted the police and if so what their reaction was, as well as the reaction of the vehicle operator if it was a bus, lorry or van with company markings etc.
