Brabourne Lees is a village in the civil parish of Brabourne, within the Ashford borough of Kent, England.[1] [2] The village (centre) is just under 5 miles (8 km) east of Ashford town centre itself geographically. By road this is a journey of about 6 miles (10 km).

The village was built on former pasture land ("lees") at the foot of the North Downs. Brabourne Baptist Church is at the junction of Calland and Plain Road; there is also a Zion Strict Baptist Chapel to the northeast of the village, on Canterbury Road.
