Some interesting facts about Rochester, Kent

The Romano-British name for Rochester was Durobrivae. This is commonly translated as 'stronghold by the bridge' or 'stronghold by the bridges'. This could have been a Belgic Settlement or oppidum, but there was no bridge in AD 43. It was also known as Durobrovum and Durobrivis, which could be a Latinisation of the British word 'Dourbruf' meaning swiftstream.

It is recorded as Durobrivis c.730 and Dorobrevis in 844. It was pronounced as 'Robrivis. Bede copied down this name, c730, mistaking its meaning as Hrofi's fortified camp (OE Hrofes cæster). From this we get c730 Hrofæscæstre, 811 Hrofescester, 1086 Rovescester, 1610 Rochester.

While the name of the city of Rochester contains the Latin word for "Castra", which is present in the names of many cities that were once Roman camps (eg, Latin, Chester "Deva"), it is assumed that Rochester is a city Roman fortress, but does not indicate any evidence of such a fortress. Roman road system suggests that there was a row of shops and houses built along the road, and a systematic fortification has not taken place before 175 AD

Latinized adjective "Roffensis" refers to Rochester.

Rochester has for centuries been of great strategic importance due to its location near the confluence of the River Thames and Medway. The castle was built to guard the River Crossing, and the Royal Dockyard at Chatham was the key to the long domination of the Royal Navy. Medway as part of the city, surrounded by two circles and fortifications, the inner line of fortifications built during the Napoleonic Wars, Fort Clarence Fort Pitt Fort Amherst and Fort Gillingham. The smallest 'Palmerston' fortifications were built in 1860 in the light of the Royal Commission to defend the United Kingdom report, these included the school's Fort, Fort Bridgewood, Fort Luton, and reduced Twydall, two large islands on the Medway, Fort Hoo Fort Darnet .

During World War II aircraft manufacturer Short Brothers built the first aircraft to launch a torpedo, the short type of Admiralty 184, and during the Second World War did the first four-engine bomber, Stirling and flying boats float at its plant in River Medway, near Rochester Castle.

The decline of naval power and shipbuilding in general, led the government to abandon the Chatham Dockyard in 1984 and the consequent loss of most of the maritime industry. Rochester and surrounding areas were severely affected by this situation and have experienced a painful adjustment to a post-industrial economy, exclusion and unemployment that is much more. On the closure of Chatham Dockyard area has seen an unprecedented increase in unemployment to 15.9%. This figure was reduced to 3.5% in 2004.

And its neighbors Rochester, Chatham and Gillingham, form a single large urban area known as the Medway towns with a population of about 250,000. But Rochester has always ruled the earth to the other side of the Medway in Strood. This was known as Strood Intra and before 1835 was about 100 feet wide and stretched for rail gun. The Municipal Corporations Act 1835 the limits were expanded to include more Strood and Frindsbury, and part of Chatham known as intra Chatham. In 1974, the Council of the City of Rochester was abolished and replaced by the City of Medway, which also included the parishes of Cuxton, Halling and Cliffe, and the peninsula of Hoo. In 1979, the district became Rochester-upon-Medway. The mayor of Rochester was the Admiral of the Medway and dignity was transferred to the Mayor of Medway unitary authority when it created the Court of Admiralty for the river that has been established as a committee of the Council.

Like many other medieval towns in England in Rochester was a local man was removed from duty free on a civil case of the Local Government Act 1835. However, the work of the Guild of fishermen and dredgers continued free, and still has the rights, responsibilities Medway from Sheerness and Acuto Stone. This administration is going through the Admiralty Court as the jury in charge of free men of the River Conservancy through the existing legislation. Freedom is through the "slavery" or apprenticeship working Freeman. The beat cross-river annual ceremony occurs when a court, usually the first Saturday of the month of July.

City of Rochester by the state in 1211, but due to an administrative error had been soaked in Rochester Medway unified authority of the state of the lost city. Later, the authority is required Medway single-city status of Medway as a whole, not only in Rochester. Medway has requested city status in 2000 and 2002, and re-applies anniversary of the Queen in 2012, but is competing with many other cities celebrate. City of Rochester Society has stated that the application would be in the position of the name "Rochester-upon-Medway", and "Medway", because the city's position has always just been given places in government and academia, and the party Green has also campaigned for the application to be able to Rochester, instead of Medway.

Watling Street runs through the city and south of the River Medway is filled by the M2 motorway and HS1.
