Many sites of the Ashford Green Corridor are rich with history and cultural heritage…

Take a moment to explore the manors of Singleton and Buxford in the west, Boys Hall Moat (a scheduled ancient monument) in the east. Victoria Park, with its fountain and commemorative trees, the intriguingly named ‘Watercress Fields’, and Martyr’s Field with its macabre past – all have stories to tell. Many areas were farmed until relatively recently and are living links to Ashford’s past as an agricultural market town.

In 2007, we published a Heritage document. The project reviewed major themes that shaped the present need and usage of the green space, such as the market, railway and war. It also shares more unknown influences and facts. You can download the pdf here.
