Dedicated to the Recording and Promotion of Lenham's Heritage
'Heritage is a boat which takes us to the future'
to the parish of Lenham, the village with its medieval market square, the chalky hillside of the Kent Downs above it, the heath with its open skies and the fruitful land of Liverton. We invite you for a stroll through Lenham's history and heritage. Perhaps you can walk through this place with open eyes and see the footsteps of people who walked here before you and made the place what it is today. It will be up to us, both, old and new residents, to take Lenham into a future where the past is cherished for its merits, the natural environment is safeguarded and community thrives,
this website is currently administered by the local history group 'Lenham Heritage'. We share a love of learning, but we are not professional historians or website designers. Please bear with us as we add more pages.
