Welcome to the website of The Rochester Bridge Trust.
Since Roman times a bridge has crossed the River Medway at Rochester, and since medieval times the Wardens and Assistants of Rochester Bridge have maintained this strategic river crossing.
The Rochester Bridge Trust is very sad to announce that Dr James M. Gibson passed away peacefully on 27 February. Dr Gibson had been Archivist to the Trust for more than 30 years and had recently celebrated his 70th birthday. He was a well-respected colleague and friend to all at the Trust and a much loved father and grandfather.

The Rochester Bridge Trust has built and maintained numerous Medway crossings since medieval times. In the late fourteenth century the old Roman bridge was destroyed by winter storms.
