Welcome to the website of The Rochester Bridge Trust.

Since Roman times a bridge has crossed the River Medway at Rochester, and since medieval times the Wardens and Assistants of Rochester Bridge have maintained this strategic river crossing.

The Rochester Bridge Trust has been unable to file its accounts for 2022/23 with the Charity Commission. This is due to issues accessing the account, which has not been possible since a new system was launched in July 2023. The Trust is working with the Charity Commission to resolve this issue, which has affected a number of organisations. Meantime, the annual accounts for the Rochester Bridge Trust can be found on this web page.


Today the Trust owns and maintains the two A2 bridges and the service bridge at Rochester, crossings as important for today’s traffic and modern life as at any time in our history.

Our Education Website

The Trust is committed to Supporting Engineering Education and encouraging young people to learn more about civil engineering and bridge building. Visit our educational website for more information.


The Rochester Bridge Trust has built and maintained numerous Medway crossings since medieval times. In the late fourteenth century the old Roman bridge was destroyed by winter storms.
