Did You Know?
It seems that Ashford most probably originates from an original settlement established around 893AD. It became large enough to have a mention in the doomsday book, listed with a church and two mills under the name ‘Essetesford’ in 1086.
Ashford officially became a market town in 1243 and by 1600 it had risen to become an important market town, primarily for livestock.
Ashford transformed rapidly in the 1840s. In 1842 the railway arrived and in 1846 with the building of the railway works. This helped the town double in size by 1861. The railway community had its own shops, schools, pubs and bathhouse. The works closed in 1981.
From 1832 Ashford was lit by gas and from 1845 the streets were regularly cleaned. From 1867 household rubbish was collected. A cemetery opened in 1860. Victoria Park was laid out in 1886 and a sewage works opened in 1889.
Amenities in Ashford continued to improve in the 20th century. The first cinema opened in 1911. A tank was presented to the town in 1919. However Ashford had to wait until 1926 for an electricity supply. The first public library in Ashford opened in 1928.
During the 20th century Ashford continued to grow rapidly. By 1951 Ashford had nearly 25,000 inhabitants. During the Second World War 83 people were killed in Ashford by German bombing, but the town continued to flourish. The Ashford bypass was built in 1957. The Stow Centre opened in 1978 and a new Civic Centre opened in 1983.
1996 continued the railway tradition in Ashford with the opening of Ashford International Passenger station, part of the high speed rail connection network between Britain and the continent, bringing the journey time from Ashford to Paris to about 2 hours 30 minutes. And in 2009 the high speed rail link began operation, cutting journey times to London from Ashford to 37 minutes.
Today the population of Ashford is 58,000.
