Aylesford – Medway Valley Line

March 7, 2017 K3v1n-L0g1N

Aylesford is a large village on the River Medway. The old village can be accessed on foot via a 14th century five-arched bridge and is about 10 minutes walk from the station. There has been settlement here since Neolithic times, as evidenced by the long barrows at Aylesford Priory, (The Friars,) an ancient religious house of the Order of Carmelites dating back to the 13th Century.

The village has restaurants and pubs along the riverside. There are three community walks as well as access along the Medway Valley Walk.
