From the rear side cover: Milton Regis, a suburb of Sittingbourne, has had a colourful and eventful history. In the centre of Milton Regis the royal and varied history can be seen in the buildings surrounding the main High Street. This area was once heavily involved in the paper manufacturing industry, an industry still in operation today. The creek was once used as a power source for the mill to operate, as well as being an effective, safe and cheap method of transporting the goods. A museum project is now underway to help restore the area surrounding the creek as the Periwinkle Water Mill Museum. Join local historian John Clancy on this fascinating journey into the past to show what changes this part of the world has witnessed over the years. This new book will be essential reading for anyone who knows and loves this part of Kent.

The book will delight anyone who has lived or grown up in Milton Regis, as well as people with a more general interest in the social history of this part of Kent and beyond...
