The history of Ashford
Did you know that the area around Ashford has been the site of human settlement from at least the Iron Age? There is an Iron Age earthwork named a barrow located on Barrow Hill which dates from at least 1500 BCE. The name of the town is derived from the Old English language word aescet which pertains to a ford located near a group of ash trees. A ford was a point on a river that could be safely crossed on foot.
During the 13th century, the town developed as a market town when Henry the Third granted Ashford a charter for a livestock market. Around the same time there grew in the town the pottery industry which came to be a significant contributor to pottery in the region. In the late 18th century, the local farmers set up sporadic market days and to this day, there is a regular street market in the town.
