Local historian Steve Salter’s recent article has certainly rekindled memories for me of the old market entrance. The article mentions that The iconic pillars, which were erected in 1878 by J U Bugler, will be displayed in the development to showcase the site’s history.
Bugler’s foundry is mentioned on a plaque on the wall of the County Hotel where it is said that there were five foundries in Ashford in the 1900’s.
