Leybourne is a small village in Kent, South East England situated off Junction 4 of the M20 Motorway. Leybourne is adjacent to Larkfield and West Malling.

Historically, the area was extensively quarried, leaving a number of flooded gravel pits. These have recently been developed into Leybourne Lakes Country Park, and a housing development.

Amenities Edit

Leybourne has a primary school, pre Norman-conquest church, 13th century castle (dating back to Norman times), hairdressers, shop, newsagent and general store, village hall, pub/restaurant (The Old Rectory) and a Brewers Fayre restaurant and motel.

Leybourne and the neighbouring town of West Malling elect three councillors to Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council. It also has its own Parish Council.

Sport Edit

There are junior football teams aging from Under 6's to Under 18's and also a cricket club for adults and children on the school premises: Leybourne St Peter and St Paul Church of England Primary school (Voluntary aided).

Open spaces Edit

Nearby Leybourne Lakes offer fishing, scenic walking and cycle paths plus water sports such as windsurfing and scuba diving.
