The first Rochester Bridge over the River Medway in Kent was constructed soon after the Roman invasion of Britain in AD43. After the collapse of the Roman Empire, a system of “Bridgework” developed under which a long list of manors and parishes surrounding the crossing were responsible for its maintenance.
This talk will draw on an analysis of the earliest surviving copy of the list and the archives of the Rochester Bridge to give a unique insight into how bridge engineering and maintenance was organised in the Anglo-Saxon, Norman and early Medieval periods.
Sue Threader is the Bridge Clerk (Chief Executive) of the Rochester Bridge Trust, the ancient charity founded in 1399 to provide a free crossing at Rochester in perpetuity. She is a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers, a member of the ICE Archives Panel and founding chair of the Kent and East Sussex Historical Engineering Group. She has written books on civil engineering for children, mentors a number of young engineers and leads an award-winning civil education programme for young people and families for which she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Science.
