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.

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

Does anyone remember the lorry that used to tour Ashford in December, that was decorated as Santa's sleigh? Santa used to sit on it and they used to collect money for charity - any pictures?

Sparked a Memory for you?

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