Welcome to the Pictorial History of Ashford website

I hope you enjoy browing through these old and not so old images of Ashford and it's environs. The town is changing even now, see how it looked before the great changes which began in the 70s.

New Features

I have added several new features in the last few weeks:

Try the Clickable Maps to see Google maps with clickable markers - click a marker to see an old view at that position.

When viewing a card, you will now see the Google Streetview™ option. Click the box to see a current view from the same standpoint as the original (or as close as possible!)

Take a quick look through the [Help using the site] page for new features - I am adding them all the time!

Finally, please contact me if you have any comments or suggestions.



The month's featured image

Soldiers billeted at 159 Godinton Road

This nicely detailed card shows three officers and presumably their Landlady standing outside 159 Godinton Road.
