Welcome to Heaths Countryside Corridor!
Welcome to the HCC website. Have a look around!

Heaths Countryside Corridor is a local community project that relies on local interest and management. It was born out of a desire to provide places for local people to go and for wildlife to thrive and the group now owns three sites in the Lenham Heath and Charing Heath area.
We hope that the local community enjoys visiting our three sites and being involved in the various activites and events we organise each year.
The objects of the Heaths Countryside Corridor are "to conserve and enhance, for the benefit of the public, the natural beauty and habitats of the Greensand belt area around Charing and Lenham and to educate the public in all matters relating to the natural and physical environment and its conservation and protection".

Get Involved!

HCC to merge with the Kent Wildlife Trust

Hi All

After almost 20 years the HCC trustees have decided that it is time to hand over the responsibility of managing the 3 sites owned by HCC to the Kent Wildlife Trust (KWT) https://www.kentwildlifetrust.org.uk/

KWT have very similar objectives to HCC and have a long history of successful management of wildlife sites in Kent. The process of merging with KWT is not straightforward, however it does look like the merger will be completed in the next few months.

All HCC funds will be transferred to KWT and once the merger is completed HCC will be dissolved.

This website will continue to exist until the end of January.

The trustees would like to thank everyone who has been involved in this initiative. KWT is always looking for volunteers, so please do contact them if you would like to get involved or organise future events at the HCC or other sites.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year

Jon, Karen, Ruth and Will (The HCC trustees)
