Newspaper Information



Kent is situated on the south-east edge of Great Britain, opposite to France, which is about twenty-four miles away. On the north it is bounded by the river Thames; on the east side, and part of the south are the North Sea (formerly known as the German ocean) and the English Channel; on the remainder of the south side it is skirted by Sussex, and on the west by Surrey.  All classes of cereals and root produce are bountiful, as is  fruit of choice quality.  More hops are grown in Kent than in all the rest of England.  The chief manufacturing output is paper, with most of the mills being on the banks of the Medway, Cray, and Darent.
