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.
I have switched the forum on and not made a huge fanfare about it. The idea is people will discover it and if there are any minor niggles, I can fix it in good time with minimum disruption. I hope you enjoy using it! Once I see it working properly, I will announce it more widely.
The most recent features I have added are:
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!)
The old Ashford Hospital at the end of Kings Avenue. In th news recently having been saved from demolition yet again.
If you have enjoyed your visit and/or find the site useful, donations to help with the hosting and development costs are always welcome. Or maybe click an Amazon link and buy something? It doesn't matter what! Thank you!
