The Crypt is the oldest part of the Cathedral dating from the 1080s. A thousand years before that time the Romans were building the very first bridge across the Medway at Rochester. Spanning the centuries, Rochester's Mystery Book known as the Textus Roffensis links that ancient first-century bridge with today's modern bridges.
