Medway Archives

Medway Archives has moved! No longer at the Clocktower building, it is now at 32 Bryant Road in Strood (the old Strood Library).

As their website says, “Medway Archives Centre is the place to visit for anyone researching their family history, or the history, geography and people of Medway, or who would like to know more about the writer Charles Dickens. We cover Rochester, Strood, Chatham, Gillingham, Rainham and surrounding villages and communities, including the Isle of Grain.

Access to original archive material at the Medway Archives Centre is by appointment only and requires a County Archive Research Network (CARN) reader’s ticket. Contact us for more information

Local studies material, such as printed books and maps, is available to view without appointment. Some resources, such as film readers and computers, require advance booking.”
