The hamlet of Ashley only just qualifies for a town synopsis. The historic Anglican Church being the swinging point. Ashley also could be considered a suburb of Rangiora except being over the river gives a greater degree of interdependence. Just.

Ashley is a very small town some 4k from Rangiora.

Nearby is the Ashley George which is not far off the beautiful Inland Scenic Route 72. On this route you can enjoy the scenery and have a peaceful trip with less traffic than the main routes. From Ashley you can head to Kaikoura, Hanmer Springs, West Coast, Methven and Geraldine.

Ashley has a hotel that is a popular watering hole and the historic Anglican Church.

Ashley has a high profile War Memorial that canít be missed for the traveler heading north.

The Church and Hotel are worth a look in.
