A great number of Bronze Age artifacts have been unearthed in Ashford, giving in the nickname "Bronzefield." There is also evidence of settlements dating back to the Norman Conquest, and it is believed that the land was part of an agricultural village in Saxon times. The town was listed as "Exeforde" in the Domesday Book in 1066.
Today, Ashford is known for its proximity to London, historic churches, and transportation.
