The C375 as Windmill Road. Note the hospital wall on the left.

Route

The C375 starts as Windmill Road very close to the A2 on Chatham Hill, as vehicles cannot pass between the two. Rising steeply as it heads north, the C275 quickly has a junction with Longhill Avenue. Turning right here, the route continues along Windmill Road, with the left side being bordered by the Medway Maritime Hospital. Shortly, just before the main entrance to the hospital, the road is again blocked by bollards, Passing over the min-roundabout, the road continues as Windmill road, and continues to skirt the hospital grounds.

For the third time, the road is blocked before a junction, this time with the C376 Canterbury Street, Rock Avenue and Gillingham Road. Crossing over here, the C375 continues through Victorian terraces as Gillingham Road, before encountering another busy junction. Here, the C375 crosses the A231 (with Trafalgar Street also joining), in a large set of traffic lights adjacent to the Fleur De Lis pub.

Continuing in a north east direction, the C375 shortly meets the C377 at a busy mini-roundabout, known locally as the 'Livi', based on its correct name: Livingstone Circus. This junction is named after the former pub, named the Livingstone Arms and popular with football fans, which is now an American themed restaurant. The popularity of the pub with football fans is no surprise given the next three roads the C375 meets (Gordon Road, Pristfield Road and Linden Road) all lead to Priestfield Stadium, home of Gillingham Football Club.

Gillingham Road becomes Ingram Road, before passing the Gillingham train depot and over a level crossing. The frequency of trains on this section of the Chatham Main Line, coupled with the depot being the other side of the C375 to Gillingham station, means this crossing can be closed quite often during peak periods, causing numerous traffic delays. Ingram Road continues north through more Victorian terracing before passing St Mary Magdalene Church, and becoming Church Street. A drop down the hill shortly leads to the end of the C375, at a roundabout with the A289 and access to the Strand, a local leisure park.
