Description:
Milton Regis is a village in the district of Swale in Kent, England. It has a population of about 5,100. Today it is a suburb of Sittingbourne although this has not always been the case. Milton Regis has a much older and richer history. It was only a few hundred years ago when the position was reversed with Sittingbourne being the less important, much smaller hamlet and under the control and power of the Manor of Milton Regis. It must be pointed out that the current location of Milton Regis dates back to Medieval period, with many fine timber-framed houses and buildings existing today, with a Medieval Court Hall (a seat of Justice and Administration) that dates back to 1450AD. The town and Manor of Middleton Regis as it was called then was recorded as the largest and most powerful manor in the Lathe of Scraye (in the centre of Kent). Before this, in ancient times - the original location of the town was approximately a mile further north, sited on what is called today Church Marshes (see Church Marshes Country Park) at the base of Kemsley Down, on the banks of Milton Creek at its estuary with the River Swale, which acts as a boundary with the Isle of Sheppey. It's partly due to these two navigable waters that link directly to the River Thames and its estuary across the English Channel to Europe ,that has formed its rich history. These two waterways of Milton creek and the Swale have been used as motorways as a connection to trade and invade throughout time.
