At Little Golford Cranbrook is the farm that belonged to the Santer Family for 300 years. On this farm is a building now used as a garage but was converted from an Oast House by Mr and Mrs Malins after the property was sold by the Santers to them. This Oast House is believed to be the smallest of its type in England. Mr Edward Santer of Oakdene Beneden whose father and grandfather lived on the farm said in a newspaper article that the Oast was used up until 1925 and could only drive about 60 bushels of hops at a time. The farm itself was originally part of the Earl of Cranbrooks estate and later Lord Rothermere. There is a board inside the oast house bearing the date 1590.

The History of Ashford, Kent Ashfords history is based on its location between Dover and London and this looks to be important in the future with the international station and the high speed train service from London to Europe through the Channel Tunnel. There are different views as to how the name Ashford came about. Records show that for several centuries the settlement or town in Ashford was known as "Essetesford". Some people believe that "Essetesford" stands for "ash trees growing near a ford", while others suggest that it meant "a ford over the river Eshe or Eshet", which was the old name for the tributary of the River Stour which rises at Lenham. No one can be quite sure when people first settled in the Ashford area. Roman remains have been found at Westhawk, and a road, built to transport iron ore from the Weald of Kent to the north Kent Coast, went through Ashford, following what is now Kingsnorth Road and Beaver Road in South Ashford and Station Road and Wellesley Road through to Kennington. It is believed that Ashfords origins lay in the 1800s when England was invaded by the Danes in 893. At this there were settlements at Great Chart and Appledore, and as the Danes raided these settlements the people fled to the forests for safety. It is thought that many of the survivors settled either in nearby forest or in the "Royal Ville of Wye". As a reward for their services in battle a group of people are thought to have settled on land in what is now Ashford, given to them by the Saxon Lord. Before the Norman invasion, it is known that part of Ashford was owned by St. Augustines Abbey at Canterbury, the other part belonged to King Edward the Confessor and some belonged to Earl Godwin, the father of King Harold. After the Conquest, St Augustines kept its land, but the rest was given to Hugh de Montfort, one of the Conquerors commanders, as a reward for his services in battle.
