More about this scene

Memories of Ashford

I have really good memories of going to Stanhope Primary School along Kingsnorth Road, Ashford. Are there any old photos of the school? I know it has been pulled down.. such a beautiful old building.

I remember the old tank; there used to be a place at the back of it where we used to get a cup of coffee or coke and listen to the jukebox - that was in the early 60's. I also remember when the high street had two way traffic with double decker buses going to and fro.

Sparked a Memory for you?

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?
