Welcome to Badlesmere Lees

Badlesmere Lees is situated on the A251 four miles south of Faversham.

It is 16 acres of green and pleasant land which is communally maintained by the residents that live around its edge.


The cost of maintaining the Lees for the enjoyment of all means we have to raise funds.  We have regular events that get the community together and bring in some cash.  Please come and enjoy our Lees and help us keep it pretty by supporting our activities.

Badlesmere Lees and Hall Committee

The Committee now meets regularly to consider issues and improvements with regard to the Lees and the village hall.  


A list of members and a full archive of the meeting minutes can be seen here.

Walk on the Lees

The Lees is lovely to stroll on at any time of year.  It is also criss-crossed by footpaths leading to and from the local attractions and churches


In May the surrounding woods have breathtaking displays of bluebells.

Christmas Trees from Nash’s Farm, Luddenham.

Visit the farm , select and reserve a tree for collection nearer Christmas. The trees are growing and will not be cut or dug until  collected so they will remain fresher for longer.  


 You are recommended to come early but please contact us in advance of your visit. Some of the funds collected are given to your local parish church, the remainder goes to other charities.
