' The Canal Basin, the western end of the Thames and Medway Canal, opened on the 14th October 1824 at a cost of around £260,000 (original estimated cost in 1799 was approximately £24,500). The eastern end was at the Medway at Strood. The canal became impassable to barges in 1846 when the South Eastern Railway filled in the Higham and Strood tunnels to allow its double tracked railway to pass through. '
