Medway Valley

The River Medway meanders through the Kent countryside forming an important wildlife corridor rich with a diversity of habitats. Kingfishers, dragonflies, fish, and water voles, are just some of the animals you can find. The Medway Valley is bursting with wildlife and culture; magnificent meadows and wild woodlands, orchards and paddocks, and traditional Kent Oast houses and water mills make the Medway Valley a wonderful place to walk and explore.

At 930 square miles, this beautiful river has the largest catchment area anywhere in England. The Medway has been navigable for over two centuries, and is rich in historical sites dating as far back to pre-Roman occupation. Its importance to civilisation is shown by how many mills, farms, villages and main towns are along its length.
