About us

Lesnes Abbey is an 88 hectare open space with the ruins of a 12th-century abbey and 70 hectares of ancient woodland. It is a wonderful space and National Lottery Heritage Funding is helping us to make it even better.

We are looking for volunteers to help us celebrate and carry on these improvements. We have some challenges you can do on site, at home, or at a distance, and we’ll add more challenges as soon as we can. Future challenges will ask for your help to share this space with everybody- whether you want to care for gardens, support visiting schools, be part of an events team, or learn to give guided walks there will be a lot of chances to make Lesnes Abbey Woods a great space for your community.
