Based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Splashbacks of Distinction have a real passion for toughened glass in and around the home. We have transformed many properties, both commercial and domestic with our glass splashbacks, for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices.
The name Gillingham is recorded already in the Domesday book of 1086. It is said to have been named after a warlord, Gyllingas from the old English gyllan, meaning to shout. He was a very important man in Kent history as he led his warriors into battle screaming and shouting. At the time of the Norman Conquest, Gillingham was a small hamlet. It was given to his half brother, Odo, Bishop of Bayeux, who rebuilt the parish church at Gillingham and constructed an Archbishops Palace on land bordered by Grange Road, the ruins of which could still be seen in the last century. Gillingham itself, at the time, was a small hamlet, built around the parish church and surrounded by large farm holdings, of which St. Marks Parish formed part, being part of Brittain Farm.
Gillingham has been the scene of two disasters, on 11 July 1929 a public demonstration by Gillingham Fire Brigade went wrong, resulting in 15 fatalities; and in the 1951 Gillingham bus disaster, 24 Royal Marine cadets aged 10 to 13 were killed in a road accident.
David Frost the Television presenter lived in Gillingham.
