Documentation of change to an environment is a very important part of social history, and in the present this recording is being done by the common man as well as traditional means.

Technology improvements over time have meant that anyone can get involved in recording changes to their environment and many do so without realising the significance of their actions.

Many images will never be printed , and will ultimately be deleted and lost forever.

This site aims to keep in place a record of life in Gravesend (and beyond) and changes to the area over time. With the prospect of a large theme park being installed in the area, and a further airport and river crossing planned nearby along with changes to the Riverfront, it is essential that a record of the area and how it was changed is kept.

We hope to help make this happen, and perhaps form part of other resources documenting social history and change.
