Product description


For centuries Ashford was a sleepy market town. This changed when the railway arrived in 1842, bringing with it a certain amount of industry: the town had doubled in size by 1861. Arguably more dramatic have been the developments of the last fifty years, which Steve Salter illustrates in this new book. The early 1970s saw a major redevelopment of the town centre, while the '90s brought Ashford International station in 1996, when the Channel Tunnel was constructed. New housing estates are being constructed all the time, and the current rate of 600 new houses a year is due to increase in the next twenty years to more than a thousand: Ashford has been designated one of the south-east's four growth areas. Including over 200 photographs from the 1950s, '60s and '70s, many of which are previously unpublished, Changing Ashford clearly illustrates the controversial redevelopment and unprecedented change that have overtaken this small Kent town in the last half century.
