Medway is a unitary authority and a conurbation located at the South East of England. In 1998 the Gillingham Borough Council amalgamated with City of Rochester-upon-Medway to establish a unitary authority. They did this to form the new Medway Council.
Medway is colloquially called as the Medway Towns. More than half of this unitary authority is rural in nature. Because it is strategically located at one of the major crossings of the River Medway, it has made a mark in the historical background of Kent and even to England which dates back to thousands of years ago.
Its historical richness is evident at the site of the Norman Rochester Castle, the Chatham naval dockyard and its associated defences and the Rochester Cathedral (the second oldest in Britain). The towns that are included in the conurbation arranged from the west to east based on their geographical positions are Strood, Rochester, , Gillingham, Chatham and Rainham.
Frindsbury, , Walderslade, Brompton, Wigmore, Luton, are just a few of the smaller towns that are also included in the conurbation. The villages have retained the parish councils that they have. Wouldham, Cuxton and Halling lie in the Medway Gap. It is the region to the south of Strood and Rochester. Some parts of the North Kent Marshes are included in the Medway. These are the regions that are environmentally significant because of it being a wetland region.
The Thames Gateway development scheme has included Medway in its list of boroughs. It has become a home to the Universities of Medway including the top three best universities -- University of Greenwich, the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University.
