Chatham is a large English town that developed around an important naval dockyard on the east bank of the River Medway.

It became a market town in the 19th century, and a municipal borough in 1890.

One of the famous inhabitants of Chatham is Charles Dickens, who lived in the town as a boy, and would later describe that time as the happiest period of his childhood.
