Ashford books: History & Heritage
Steve Salter has rapidly established himself as Ashford's best-known local historian, and his third book showcases some of the best images in his unique photographic archive. As with his previous books the focus is primarily on streets and buildings, but social and economic changes aren't forgotten. Old Ashford has to a large extent been buried beneath the massive redevelopment of the last twenty years, but Steve Salter guides us through the town as it used to be, illustrating long-lost landmarks and reminding us of what has gone - as well as pointing out historic features that still remain.

Ashford Then & Now Revisited is a superb collection photographs compiled by author and local historian Steve R. Salter. Scenes of yesteryear are contrasted with modern colour views to show the changing face of the town over the years. This book offers an insight into people's daily lives and living conditions, and the nature of the photographs coupled with the author's informative captions show the sometimes drastic changes which have taken place in the name of progress. Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community and illustrated with a wealth of fascinating images, this book recalls what has changed (and in some cases remained the same) in Ashford in terms of buildings, traditions and ways of life.
