Kent Case Study
This case study is the result of a partnership between the Parliamentary Archives, Parliamentary Outreach, Kent History & Library Centre and Marden History Group. It is part of the Connecting with Communities project which was launched in July 2009.
The Communities project explores the impact of Parliament on local communities and investigates how people have influenced Parliament. We do this by researching material held in the Parliamentary Archives at Westminster, as well as records held locally by regional archives.
This project looks at the impact of the South Eastern Railway on the community of Marden in Kent.
In order to examine the impact of the railway on travel, we needed to find out what travel was like in the area before 1841.
