Strood – Medway Valley Line

March 7, 2017


Strood is where the Medway Valley line meets the North Kent line and High Speed 1 and is just across the river Medway from Rochester. Strood lies on the edge of marshy land alongside the River Medway. The chalk hills of the North Downs have been breached at this point, forming a river cliff rising to 100 ft directly behind. Stroll across Rochester Bridge and visit the historic High Street with it’s many restaurants and unique shops, Rochester Castle and the Cathedral. Or take a stroll to Upnor Castle


Strood station is a short distance from National Cycle Route 1, so is ideal for starting a cycle ride around Medway. The town has many retail outlets, both in the town and in a nearby retail park.
