On the banks of the River Darent in Kent lies the commuter town of Dartford, sixteen miles to the South East of the centre of London.
The town is an important travel hub, known for its excellent rail and road links to the capital but perhaps most famous for the Dartford Tunnel, which allows the M25 to travel under the River Thames.
With a heritage dating back to Pre-Roman times, the town and surrounding area is steeped in history, still evident in some of Dartford's older buildings.
The most prominent of these is the Holy Trinity church that sits on the western bank of the river, parts of which were originally constructed in the tenth century. The church hosts a memorial to Richard Trevithick, one of the pioneers of the steam locomotion and one of Dartford's most famous sons.
