Esplanade investigations – work is ongoing

We are aware it’s been some time since you’ve been updated about the hoardings near Rochester Castle. The simple reason for this is that there’s not yet anything to say.

The location of the site near an historic landmark, busy road and a tidal river means work is being undertaken by a number of agencies in a staged approach. This is to ensure the safety of the public and any further archaeological finds.

Work is progressing steadily but slowly and is expected to complete soon.

The site will then need to be rebuilt and made safe before the hoardings can be removed.
