 GUNPOWDER AT FAVERSHAM   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Faversham has long been associated with the production of Gunpowder and it is claimed that this local industry thrived in this area prior to the reign of Elizabeth I. Saltpetre and Sulphur had to be imported and Faversham Creek, a busy area many years ago was ideal for ships to bring in these raw materials.
In addition to these factors, the stream that fed into Faversham creek could also provide the water power that apparently was required to assist in the grinding and mixing of the three ingredients.
It seems that Faversham was also the first place to produce "Guncotton" which is more powerful than Gunpowder and consequently, when production started in 1847, there was an even higher rate of fatalities as a result of accidents and bigger and better explosions.
