Chatham

Chatham is the name of an English town that developed around an important naval dockyard on the east bank of the River Medway in the county of Kent. Together with Rochester and Gillingham[?] it is part of a conurbation called the Medway Towns, having a combined population of approximately 250,000. The dockyard ceased to operate as a naval base in 1984. Part of it became a historic site and the rest has been developed as a commercial marina.

Some places in Canada and the United States of America also share this name:
