Situated on the banks of the River Great Stour, amid the stunning scenery of the North Downs in the county of Kent lies the town of Ashford. Home to one of the county's most significant agricultural markets, the town has long been an important hub for travellers and tradespeople alike.
On the site of the conjunction of five railway lines, including the newly constructed high speed rail link between London and the Channel Tunnel, Ashford is nowadays a vital communications centre from a European perspective.
Although the town has a long heritage which can still be seen in isolated pockets, much of its historical architecture has been replaced with contemporary buildings, as befits Ashford's growing commercial significance in the modern world. As a direct result of the town's extensive transport links, a large variety of industries and retailers have made a home in Ashford.
