With an easy commute to London, Reading and Guildford, these future new homes will appeal to commuters and those that enjoy getting out and about. Ash is a great place to call home. A village with a real sense of community, benefiting from excellent transport links and with good local amenities.
With ash trees springing up each year in the village centre, the village is aptly named. Close to the Basingstoke Canal, a Site of Scientific Special Interest, both Ash and its neighbouring village Ash Vale flourished when the Army established Aldershot Camp and purchased Ash Common for use as rifle ranges.
A PLACE OF INTEREST
Ash village offers semi-rural village life which straddles the Basingstoke Canal, a popular place for walkers and cyclists and has been designated a Site of Scientific Special Interest (SSSI) by English Nature. East of the canal is Ash Common, an area of open heathland designated as a Special Protection Area to preserve the habitat of three endangered species of birds, the Dartford Warbler, the Nightjar and the Woodlark.
A LONG HISTORY
There are many historic buildings in Ash that date back to the 16th/17th century such as Hartshorn, Ash Manor, Lavender Cottage, Tudor House, Azor Place and Merryworth. St. Peter’s church was virtually rebuilt in 1865 but still retains Norman, 11th, 13th and 15th century areas of interest including the tiny Norman window in the north aisle.
A COMMUNITY OFFERING
Ash is well served with leisure facilities for sport and recreation with four recreation grounds providing public tennis courts at Carrington Recreation Ground, a football pitch with changing facilities at Harpers Recreation Ground and a skate board park at Coronation Gardens.
There are many activities the whole family can enjoy with picnics areas, basketball, playgrounds and a variety of rural places to explore. Perhaps a bike ride along the canal or walk through the woodlands of Lakeside Park.
A PLACE TO GROW UP
Ash is an ideal place for families with children to grow and thrive with its own Ash Grange Primary School, Walsh (C0fe) School, Shawfield School and for the older children Ash Manor Technology College.
Ash is located on the western edge of the county of Surrey, and is exceptionally well served by rail with no fewer than three stations – Ash, Ash Vale and North Camp – situated on different routes. Frequent services run to Aldershot, Guildford, Reading and London (Waterloo) under 1 hour with direct services to Gatwick and to Heathrow via the Woking coach link. By way of a change at Reading, Ash rail travellers have quick access to the Midlands, the north of England and Scotland on inter city routes. The nearest motorway is junction 4 on the M3 which serves London West (inc M25) just over an hour with the A331 and A31(A3) direct to south west London.
