About The Millennium Field

Birds

The Millennium Field is a beautiful area of Biddenden that the public are free to explore!
There is a wooded area (the Rookery) with a stream and foot bridges, Three ponds, two had dipping platforms up an to a few years ago when they were removed because of Vandalism.
At the top of the field is a seat, a Sun clock and a Direction Indicator and part way up the field are three statues carved by a local craftsman.

The Biddenden Parish Council purchased the Millennium Field on the 27th January 1998 from Ruby Edith Gadstone and Charles Alan McDonald for the sum £45,000.

The Department of Environment approved the purchase of the land and finances were secured from the Public Works Loan Board for repayment not exceeding 26 years.

A nature and conservation area of 20.5 acres adjoining Biddenden’s recreation field.

Opened with a Country Fayre on June  the 19th 1999.

In 2023 an All-Weather-Path was made that runs from the gate entrance on the A262, up through the avenue of Oak trees, infront of the Memorial trees, and into the recreation ground, where it goes towards the tennis courts past the childrens play area and joins the path on the far side.

The Millennium Field has become a haven for wildlife, with many species of Birds inhabiting the field all year round and butterflies during the summer months.   Please see the Photo Gallery for pictures of the wildlife.
