Sittingbourne straddles the old Roman road between Dover and London. Its position midway along this ancient route, caused it to grow as a stopover place to refresh horses and travellers alike. With the coming of the railway the town's expansion subsumed the historically more important adjacent borough of Milton Regis. Bricks, cement, paper and farm crops were produced in vast quantities. After the First World War heavy industry remained important, but there was an increasing emphasis on secondary manufacturing and services. Old derelict brick fields became new commercial estates, commuters to London found property affordable and electrification of the railway track made their daily journey easier. Now the population of over 50,000 expects an enhanced town centre and shopping facilities. This fully updated edition explores the town's past and present.
