The main A2 between London, Canterbury and Dover runs through Rainham. Interestingly the road has a number of different names as it passes through from Gillingham to Rainham and then on to Sittingbourne.
One of the names for the A2 as it approaches Rainham from the Sittingbourne direction is Moor Street. Was this because at some point Moors lived here? Other names for the A2 as it runs through Rainham are:
