Welcome to the Brompton history website. Brompton village is a complex civilian area in the heart of a military world. To the south and east lie the Chatham Lines, a series of fortifications built to defend the Chatham Dockyard. To the west lies the Dockyard itself and to the north Brompton Barracks, home of the Royal Engineers.

This website is managed by the Brompton History Research Group and Royal Engineers Museum, Library & Archive and has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund in order to document the stories, memories and history of Brompton village which lies at the heart of Medway, Kent.

Please take time to browse the sections on the left of this page to learn more about the fascinating history of the village. You too can help with the project, if you have memories of Brompton, visit the Get Involved section and share your stories here.


We have a regular programme of events. You can see details for these under the 'Events' section. We welcome all members and non-members to our walks and talks, so if you see any that suit you please email us -
