A bit about Aylesford
Aylesford is a village on the River Medway in Kent, with a population of 10,660 (2011 census). The high street consists of two pubs, two restaurants, a village shop, coffee, shop, estate agents, a chiropodist and a hairdresser. Henry Arthur Brassey was a great benefactor of Aylesford who provided the village with a school (now known as The Brassey Centre in St Peter and St Paul’s Church) and helped finance major repairs to the Church. Aylesford School is a secondary school based in the village, located in Teapot Lane. The oldest parts of the village lie north and immediately south of the river. St Peter and St Paul’s Church date back to the Norman Invasion. Aylesford Priory, or The Friars, was founded in 1242, when the first Carmelites arrived from Mount Carmel in the Holy Land. They came under the patronage of Richard de Grey, a crusader, who gave them a small piece of land at his manor in Aylesford. K Sports Football Club are based in the village, playing their home games at Cobdown Ground on Station Road.
