Aylesford Stream is a 5.4 kilometre [ [http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/commondata/acrobat/stour_cfmp_2_1018400.pdf The Environment Agency] )] long tributary of the River Great Stour, joining at Pledge’s Mill at the bottom of "East Hill" in Ashford, Kent, England. The streams source is north of Sevington and runs through Willesborough and then between Newtown and South Willesborough.

The area along the stream forms part of a Local Nature Reserve, the Ashford Green Corridor, with pollarded willows adjacent to "Bentley Road" in Willesborough. Part of the area is designated as the South Willesborough Dykes, a Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI). The dykes continue on the east side of the River East Stour and amongst the residential areas.

When High Speed 1 was built through Ashford, the stream was diverted to run alongside the railway line. [ [http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts1996/96061e-i.htm Channel Tunnel Rail Link Act 1996] ]
