Ash next Ridley – History Pages

We would like to make residents aware of historical information made available by local resident; Ted Connell on his website.

His website can be accessed at: Ash next Ridley History.

He has launched a new set of pages documenting the ‘Early Days of New Ash Green’, this includes images of the start of building of Over Minnis in 1967 and pictures of the Turners Oak crossroads in 1966. You can find this at; Early Days of New Ash Green


Keep New Ash GREEN

Help fight the Ash Place Farm development proposed by Berkeley Homes, the development for around 580 new homes (equivalent to seven new neighbourhoods in New Ash Green!)

This proposal if it goes through will take away out previous green belt, and turn the whole area into just another urban sprawl.  Our roads cannot cope now and they certainly won’t if this goes through.   The whole of New Ash Green is defined by a thick tree belt – come and see our aerial photos.  We need to preserve the setting and special character of New Ash Green.  The only way this can be done is to FIGHT THESE PROPOSALS.
