About 1830 Burham became a "cement village" on the Medway, after the discovery of the manufacturing technique for Portland Cement (so called because of its resemblance to Portland stone).
By 1841 the village's population had grown to 380 and increased to a maximum of 1,725 in 1901. Today it is about 1,300.
