Welcome to the Burham Parish Council website!
We would like to welcome you warmly to our village and hope that you will quickly feel part of our village community. This website intends to give you information about the various facilities, clubs, organisations and businesses offering local services.
The original village was sited around Old St Mary’s Church close to the river crossing to Snodland. The Churches Conservation Trust (formerly known as the Redundant Churches Trust) now maintains this Church. With the development of the chalk pits, which supplied the raw materials for the extensive cement works (now long since closed), the present village was developed in the mid nineteenth century. Small modern housing developments have taken place in the last fifty years.
There is easy access to the North Downs by many bridle ways and footpaths. The Kent Wildlife Trust is doing much work to enhance the flora and fauna.
Despite its rural setting Burham has excellent road and rail links to the continent and S E England.
If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact myself or any member of the Parish Council.
