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.

I don't have a memory of the Warren, but I would love to hear from somebody, who has got a photo, or just memories of the sanatorium, that used to be down the very end of the Warren. M20 now runs right through where it used to be. Thank you
