Gravesend's rich history
Gravesend’s rich history and a promising future
Even in Roman times, the Thames made Northfleet a thriving hub of activity, and by the mid-20th-century it was the centre of the global cable communication industry. To this day, the area continues its rich history as a crossroads for both commerce and communities, and is poised to seize an invigorating future.
Henley's Overseas Cable
William Thomas Henley pioneered the manufacture of telegraph cables. In 1865 he helped build the Transatlantic Telegraph Cable, which reduced communication times between Europe and America from ten days to less than ten minutes.
The Gardens of Pleasure
Northfleet is home to the site of the Rosherville Pleasure Gardens, which became a fashionable place to spend sunny weekends for 19th-century Londoners. Many tourists would travel via the Thames on a paddle steamer, disembarking in Northfleet to enjoy the beauty of this riverside garden.
