In the Middle Ages, Sittingbourne was a stopping place for Christian pilgrims to Canterbury and offered a thriving market. Today, paper manufacture and fruit preserving and packing are the main industries. A settlement existed in the area as far back as 1086 when Norman records cite a village pond. Sittingbourne has over its long history developed significant links with the history of the river barge, still in evidence today. At the centre of the town's paved high street is the sculpture of a bronze bargeman. The Dolphin shipyard was formerly the barge yard of cement works and brick makers C.& N bsp: Burley, and is located on a tidal inlet running from Sittingbourne to the Swale.

North Kent is geologically rich in chalk, which is not found in many other places in Europe in such abundance. This naturally led cement manufacturers to settle in the area, and the modern industry still flourishes locally today. Barges were needed to move many other raw materials and finished goods into the Thames and to London and beyond; Sittingbourne was ideally suited for this purpose and a flourishing barge-building industry developed at Milton Creek and elsewhere along the coast. The earliest known barge was built in the area by John Huggens in 1803. These industries flourished during the 19th century when, as a result of the industrial revolution, Sittingbourne developed into a port from which Kent produce was transported to the London markets. Paper mills and brickfields were fed by barges that brought in sand, mud and household waste such as cinders for brick making, and took away the bricks once made.

During this era over 500 types of barges are believed to have been built, but after World War II, these activities began to fall into a decline, so that only the Burley yard continued with the repair of barges until about 1965. This lack of activity led the creek to become silted and derelict, but the 200-year-old wooden sail loft and forge was later converted to the Dolphin Sailing Barge Museum by a local enthusiast. One prominent local shipwright was the son of Alfred White who owned a yard at Sittingbourne, and had a barge yard at Blackwall in London during the 1880s where he built Swimhead barges for Goldsmith of Grays in Essex. Alfred Marconi White took over the Conyer yard from John Bird in 1890 after serving his apprenticeship at the Blackwall yard. Conyer, a hamlet of the village of Teynham, once inhabited by the Romans, is found at the head of a small creek between Sittingbourne and Faversham.

The shipwright John Bird (born 1832) is reputed to be the first of the barge builders to settle at Conyer and records exist for a sailing barge built there in 1866, the year he began his work at the yard. The White family prided themselves in the construction of the fastest barges available locally. Alfred Marconi at his Conyer yard, near brickfields, built many different types of barge. Some continued to exist as house barges well into the 1960s. The last of the many sailing barges was built at the Conyer yard was in 1914, but repair works continued well into the 1930s, with several barge yachts built in the 1920s. Visitors to Sittingbourne can still enjoy the Dolphin Yard Sailing Barge Museum.
