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. Editions are now also published for Romney Marsh and Tenterden.
