The name ‘Maidstone’ is thought to derive from a phrase meaning "stone of the people" and perhaps relating to the standing stones at Kit's Coty House just five miles north of the town. The present-day spelling emerged in the early 1600s but evidence of human settlement has been found dating back to the European Mesolithic period between 5,000 and 15,000 years ago. Modern-day Maidstone is the county town of Kent and home to a working-age population of over 100,000 people.
Kent shares close connections with London, and the River Medway flows through Maidstone towards the Thames Estuary. The Medway also flows through Rochester and this waterway was once an important trade route through the Garden of England. Major modern-day businesses in Maidstone include the loudspeaker manufacturer KEF, who named one of their speakers 'The Maidstone' in the 1990s.
The town has transitioned to more of a services economy in the post-war period, with a considerable amount of retail floor space at The Mall Maidstone, Fremlin Walk and the market place at the Lockmeadow Centre. Retail is also the largest sector for jobs in Maidstone, accounting for about one in five employment opportunities in the town, and further highlighting the importance of the services sector to the region's economy.
