Lee Abbey
Grade II listed house dating from the 1850s, extended in the 1920s and 1960s - see LinkExternal link.

Originally a private house, it was bought in 1924 with a view to converting it into a golfing hotel, resulting in the 1920s extension to the south of the original building. However the venture was not a success and bankruptcy followed. During the Second World War the building served as a school for evacuated boys. In 1945 it was purchased by a group of people who had run Christian house parties in school holidays during the war, and now serves as a Christian community and conference/retreat centre.
