Ashurst is a village five miles (8 km) west of Tunbridge Wells in Kent, England, and is in the civil parish of Speldhurst. The 10th-century parish church is dedicated to St Martin of Tours[1] The parish is located on the border between Kent and East Sussex; the River Medway forms the border between the two counties. There were two watermills located here, both now closed, and there is a weir on the river.
