    DARTFORD is the biggest its like living in the first circle of hell but with more rubbish
    in recent months gravesends moved along way up the quality stakes with new public works/roads/hospitals and our brand new eurostar terminal hence the interest in the subject
    BBC - Kent - Features - Ebbsfleet International Station
    its not a bad town just a bit rough i spent i year living in the town of canterbury and i hate that town with passion
    i looked for a display model of train but only found the hornby electric one im not looking for any particular scale just something that is large enogh to contain ample detail

    I just wondered as I live in Strood of which its only redeemable quality is that is not fire proof so at least inspires hope from that point of view items of interest are ooh ar give me a minute errm did I mention its not fire proof?, Oh we have a Russian Submarine rusting on the river, I think it might have been nicked from Gravesend.

    I must say I thought she had come from Gravesend for some reason but yes nicked from Folkstone she is the Foxtrot-class submarine the U475 now nicked named Black Widow listing and fast on her way to becoming Stroods first artificial reef. Given that she is just outside of the dockyard you would think that she could of been kept in the basin and used as an attraction while her fate was decided but people thought that about the Medway Queen and she was left to rot too.
