Buses used quiet town cen­tre roads

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - REMEMBER WHEN? -

TH­ESE pic­tures of buses in Ash­ford were sent in by a reader and were taken around 1973. One shows an East Kent Road Car Co AEC Re­gent 5 in a Red­if­fu­sion liv­ery. The sec­ond pic­ture was taken in Vicarage Lane and is the Maid­stone & Dis­trict ser­vice with one of Faggs Fleet Bedford TKs in the back­ground, an­other long-serv­ing name in town. “In view of the present ring road de­lays, I thought old Ash­for­dians would also like to re­mem­ber bet­ter times,” said Trevor Groves, from Ken­ning­ton. Mr Groves, who has lived in Ash­ford all his life and is a re­tired AA pa­trol­man, bought the pic­tures on eBay to add to his trans­port col­lec­tion.
