A lengthy amateur film with intertitles which charts the course of the River Medway from its source to Aylesford. In addition to filming the ever-changing size and speed of the river, the film-maker gives special attention to the mediaeval stone bridges which straddle it. The people, vessels and animals which populate the river are also filmed.
