How our town has changed in just a few years

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Spot The Difference - By Josie Han­nett

De­vel­op­ments and new builds in re­cent years have changed the face of Ash­ford.

Some parts of the town are al­most unrecognisable from just a few years ago.

A time-trav­el­ling tool on Google Street View now al­lows peo­ple to se­lect most roads, build­ings or ar­eas, and see how the iden­ti­cal spot used to ap­pear through­out var­i­ous years, from 2009 to 2015.

We’ve picked some of Ash­ford’s well known places as ex­am­ples of ar­eas which have un­der­gone a com­plete trans­for­ma­tion.

There are also some artists’ im­pres­sions of how the ar­chi­tects had in­tended their de­signs to look.
