Historic Aylesford is a charming and picturesque little village on the north-east bank of the Medway just north of Maidstone. A river crossing of some import, Aylesford has seen its share of activity through the centuries. Originally named Saissenaig-hobail to commemorate defeat of the Saxons in a battle here in 455, it was then renamed to Eaglesford of which Aylesford is a corruption. In 893 the Danes were defeated by Alfred in nearby Fenham and in 1016, in another fierce encounter with Dane invaders, Edmund Ironside pursued them to Aylesford and after great slaughter, drove them on to Sheppey. The Friary was built by the first order of Carmelites in Europe, in the middle of the 13th century, and then re-built in 1675 following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII in 1536. Subsequently, in the 1930ís the main house was destroyed but in 1949 the Carmelites took it over and the Friary was again restored to its former glory. Spanning the river is a medieval, five-arched bridge and the surrounding building timber-gabled buildings add to the tranquil beauty. The well-preserved Culpeper monument to the knight Sir Thomas Culpeper, who died in1604 and his lady, Dame Marie can be found in the parish church of St Peter and St Paul.
