Original Ashford Market Gate Posts

Gates seen for first time in decades – Kent Online

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.
