Lesnes Abbey

The Lesnes Site has the ruins of a 12th century abbey,  extensive ancient woodlands and an area for recreation, including a playground, a youth area including a parkour zone, and a multi-use sports area.  The Park is 88 hectares in size, with 69 hectares of woods.

In December 2013 Bexley Council received confirmation that its bid to the Parks for People Programme from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund had been successful securing nearly £3.5 million for the Lesnes Abbey Woods Enhancement Project.

The proposals include plans to regenerate the park with improvements to the woodland signage network, new playground facilities, a new education and community hub building and exciting and informative new gateway entrances.
