WELCOME

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,
