History

Caption for Gravesend, The Clock Tower 1902

Gravesend is a busy industrial town on the river Thames; here the river narrows to become a London river, and coastal pilots hand over to the river men. It has a long history of seafaring, and fleets were assembled here in Tudor times. Its grimy facade hides buildings and churches of much interest. The view from nearby Windmill Hill is spectacular.

I remember playing in the Shed, it was very cold in winter, or going up to the Squares to play. The long Borstal Walks with Father Baker, ...Read full memory
