Welcome to The Lee village website

This site provides a guide to the Chiltern communities at:  The Lee, Lee Common, Hunts Green, Kings Ash, Lee Gate and Swan Bottom, which together make up the Buckinghamshire Parish of The Lee, described as “the prettiest village amongst a host of pretty villages” (The Lady).

Please take the time to browse our website – there should be something for everyone: from the latest events to the village in the time of the Domesday Book via a monthly record of life in the year 2000; from the business of the Parish Council to the fun of the Flower Show; from where to buy a pint of milk or a bottle of wine to transport links; from a walk in the Chilterns countryside (ignoring the impact of HS2) to a stroll around ‘Midsomer’ Lee ….

The Lee Forum is for on-line discussions and the exchange of information amongst those who live in The Lee and surrounding villages.  If there is anything that other villagers can help you with do pay it a visit.
