Kentish Express publication

Kentish Express paper

The four-edition Express is based in the centre of its core town of Ashford and also serves the Tenterden, Romney Marsh, Hythe and Folkestone areas.

The first issue of the Kentish Express's forerunner, the Ashford and Alfred News appeared on July 14, 1855 - a fortnight after the Daily Telegraph made its debut. Ashford's own newspaper had eight pages and was Kent’s first penny paper.
