There is a related web site run by Patrick Ellard who has taken an active interest in all things to do with Eric Lyons and Span but in particular New Ash Green where he has lived for most of his life.
The site contains information about the concept of New Ash Green, its designers and builders, the centre and surrounding housing.
There is a web site for New Ash Green by the Village Association which deals with New Ash Green as a whole whereas the Friends of New Ash Green Village Centre website focuses specifically on the New Ash Green commercial centre.
