Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Artist’s Vision -

Many towns and cities across the United King­dom and around the globe have iconic land­mark struc­tures ... so why shouldn’t Ash­ford have some too? The Black­pool Tower looms large over the Lan­cashire sea­side resort and the An­gel of the North spreads her wings over Gateshead. The tow­er­ing Shard is one of the lat­est high-rise build­ings to dom­i­nate the Lon­don sky­line. Syd­ney is renowned for its Opera House and mil­lions of visi­tors to In­dia each year marvel at the beauty of the Taj Ma­hal. The eyes of the world were fo­cused on the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this sum­mer dur­ing the World Cup. Cur­rently, Ash­ford’s most note­able ‘sculp­ture’ is The Bolt on the mini round­about at the junc­tion of Forge Lane and El­wick Road, which doesn’t ex­actly bring the tourists flock­ing in.
