Well I had to think long and hard about this but as it was last September I had the operation on my knee. Could I go up the church tower or not, so I decided along with Margaret, Sue and Betty who is 80 years young to go for it. Slowly we climbed the spiral staircase all 78 steps to the top and what a view.
First is a panoramic shot of the Castle and the Cathedral.
Then the river with lots of boats moored and Strood behind.
Classic Chatham with its Pentagon (centre) Town Hall to the left, Gillingham Naval Memorial (Top centre) and the Medway Maritime Hospital (top right)
Two tall Towers, The Quays to the left and Chatham Dockyard to the right.
Old Rochester Bridge, you can just see the Edith May's sails in the foreground.
Finally a Gargoyle from the top of the tower with a band around his head that I think resembles a cat.
Hope you enjoyed the view, thanks for looking.
