An­other bad smell

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Ashford suf­fered a worst stench than Steve Sal­ter now de­scribes (“New at­tempt to sup­press stench from sewage works”, July 20) in the late 1950s and early 1960s and over a much larger area.

The rea­son be­ing that the sewage works was both an­cient and in­ef­fi­cient, plus the fact that Ashford was home to a well known potato crisp man­u­fac­turer, the lat­ter be­ing lo­cated at the en­trance to Cobbs Wood In­dus­trial site. When both were in full flight you could not es­cape the smell, wher­ever you were in Ashford. His­tory has a habit of re­peat­ing it­self! John Hol­land Kingsnorth
