They’ll explore the town’s connection to the Thames, and it’s oldest building, Milton Chantry

Gravesham residents are invited to join a series of heritage open days.

On September 10 there will be opportunities to learn about the town’s heritage for free.

The first is at 10.30am and is a maritime themed walk led by historian Christoph Bull which finishes on board LV21 lightship.

Gravesend’s connection with the Thames is well known – less well known are links to maritime explorers and also how the river and the Gravesend Corporation were so closely entwined that the river’s effect on the town wasn’t just geographical.

The second event will take place between 12pm and 4pm, where you’ll get the chance to meet the Monk of Milton Chantry.

Milton Chantry is Gravesham’s oldest building. During the 14th Century a number of monks and priests lived within the Chantry caring for the sick and needy.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
