About

Maidstone Museum is hosting the Bridge Works exhibition to commemorate the 141 Anniversary of the ‘New Maidstone Bridge’ being opened crossing the River Medway in the County Town.

Officially opened on 6August 1879, the Maidstone Bridge was opened when huge crowds gathered amid great celebrations. The engineer behind the bridge was Sir Joseph Bazalgette, (renowned for his work on the London sewer system), and the opening was presided over by the Mayor of Maidstone Charles Ellis when a medal was struck in commemoration of the day.

Bridge Works is a touring exhibition which offers visitors the chance to explore a fascinating interactive display from the Rochester Bridge Trust looking at how the bridges along the River Medway, including Maidstone’s bridge, developed from the Roman period to today.
