Lee Chapel South essentially links Laindon and Langdon Hills.

It has long been one of the most sought after areas to live in Basildon, not only because 'it is a very nice place to live' but also due to its convenient setting so close to the Town Centre, Hospital, Langdon Hills Nature Reserve and with the road system providing quick and easy access on to the A127, A13 and M25.

The local Primary School has a great reputation - its last OFSTED report was 'Outstanding and opposite the School is the local shooping precinct 'Kibcaps' which includes a handy Spar Convenience Store and the The Castle Mayne Pub - well known for its good live music nights.

FYI Lee is derived from the Anglo Saxon, Leam(h) meaning woodland clearing - which nakes sense as the area is adjacent to Langdon Hills Nature Reserve.

At the top of The Knares was the small hamlet of 'East Lee' which had its own chapel - hence the Lee Chapel.
