HIS­TORY PIECE

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Youngster Creates Tourism Pamphlet -

Ash­ford his­to­rian Steve Sal­ter, pic­tured, said the mo­saic was re­moved in 2010, when the old li­brary was de­mol­ished.

It had to be cut in two to re­move it from the old li­brary foyer, where it was lo­cated, and the two halves have been ‘stored’ at the rear of the Ash­ford Gate­way build­ing ever since.

Mr Sal­ter said: “In some ways it was de­stroyed when they cut it in two and ob­vi­ously it’s been stand­ing in the car park in all weath­ers for seven years now, ex­posed to the el­e­ments.

“It would in­volve a lot of work and ef­fort to move it some­where else, which is a shame be­cause it is a piece of Ash­ford his­tory.

“It has been of­fered to var­i­ous peo­ple over the years but noth­ing has ever come of that.”
