We’d spent the day in and around Rochester and for some reason our satnav directed us along A2 towards M25 instead of the way we came in via M20. Anyway, it’s always good to go a different way and this interesting bridge loomed up. There’s...More

I walked over this bridge from the Strood side of the Medway river to the Rochester side, and was afforded great views of the castle, the cathedral, and the boat yard in the river. The walkway is very safe, separated from the roadway, with easy...More

but this one leaves me a little perplexed, it's like it's been built and rebuilt over many centuries with each architect trying to erase what the previous one added! A bit messy!More

We're sorry to hear you think the structure of our bridges is a bit messy. The Old Bridge has indeed been rebuilt, just over 100 years ago, when the deck was raised and the bowstring trusses installed to make it easier for ships to travel...More

Driving over the bridge seeing all the beauty is absolutely breathtaking. A must if you visit this beautiful town.

Well past it's use as a main road through to strood, being only two lanes one of which is for vehicles turning right causing long queues, needs a slip road to Knights Road/

I adore this bridge. The majestic lions on the end look over the town of strood and the historic city of Rochester. The bridge itself is steeped in local history. The views over the river medway are beautiful.

Worth walking across for the historical side of it. Beautiful coats of arms on the tops of the bridge and lovely looking down onto the river, but very noisy as obviously a road bridge.There is a very interesting exhibition about the bridge at the moment...More

Thank you for your kind comments. We're very proud of our Old Bridge, and the Bridge Works exhibition has recently been extended, so it will be open until October.

I never thought I'd review a bridge But here goes. I pass over this bridge on a daily basis, it a busy one and carries lots of traffic. I suppose that's a testament to how well its built and maintained. As bridges go its a...More

Thank you for your comments, it was good of you to take the time to review your first bridge. The plaque is incorrect, but we're working on changing that. Regarding the missing lion heads, that's a deliberate decision to prevent them from being damaged by...More

I’m not really sure why I’m reviewing a boring bridge or maybe that’s just the point. It’s a bridge that carries traffic (and plenty of it) from Strood across the river Medway into Rochester- job done. It does have a footpath on either side of...More

We're sorry you feel that way. The road bridges at Rochester are and have always been privately owned, by a charity, the Rochester Bridge Trust. We carry out a regular cleaning and maintenance programme at no cost to the public, so can assure you the...More
