Towns twinned with Ashford in Kent


Ashford and its twinned towns :

Bad Munstereifel : Fourgeres : Hopewell


Ashford is twinned with several towns. Bad Munstereifel in Germany is Ashford's longest twinning association. Established way back in 1964, although informal links were much earlier. You can find out more about Bad Munstereifel by clicking here (we did have to use google translate for this).


Ashford is also twinned with Fougères in France. Twinning began officially in 1984 following six years of unofficial twinning. If you want to know more about Fougères then click here.


If you would like to find out more about getting involved or what’s happening regarding Fougeres or Bad Munstereifel you can contact  the chairman of Ashford Twinnig Association, Gillian Lines on 01233 643642 or visit the website - click here


Lastly, Ashford is twinned with Hopewell, Virginia in the U.S.A. Twinning began in 1994. Why are we twinned with Hopewell I hear you ask. Well, I’m glad you asked. It turns out we’re linked by history. Ashford is the birth place of Captain Francis Eppes, a founding father of Hopewell. Receiving a land grant from the King of England in 1635, Eppes and his family immigrated to the New World and established Appomattox Plantation at the confluence of the James and Appomattox Rivers in Virginia. Today Appomattox Plantation is one of the oldest existing estates in America. A major tourist attraction, the estate is now part of Petersburg National Battlefield. General Ulysses Grant maintained his headquarters there from 1864-65 during the siege of Petersburg.

You can read a press release about the lastest visit to Hopewell by peoples of Ashford (took place 7th-14th October 2015) by clicking here.

You can visit Hopewell’s website and learn more by clicking here.


 If you would like to find out more about our twinning with Hopewell, you can contact Mark Whitling of The Friends Of Hopewell Association on 07900 263620. You can visit the website by clicking here.


We'd like to put more information about what goes on but we cant find any, so it looks like you have to be in with the association to be up on all the happenings.

Welcome. Good to see you
