Upper Park Meadow Area
The narrow, western section of Lowndes Park is defined as a Locally Important Landscape Area in the Chiltern District Local Plan and the area is managed to encourage wild flora and fauna. The areas of meadow grass are also visually in character with the adjoining countryside, which is part of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The area is left as a large meadow area, accessible via wide paths, and is very popular with dog walkers, ramblers and runners. There are sinuous borders to the paths and areas of long grass left to grow around trees. There are spectacular and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. The self‐sown oaks have been selectively removed to prevent uncontrolled woodland development.
News & Events
The next Friends of Lowndes Park working party will be on Sunday 8 December 2013. We meet at 10am in the Archena Garden which is next to the Temperance Hall in Church Street.
Apple Planting Day - Chesham Community Orchard – 10am onwards at the top of the park.
The orchard is going well and now we need your help. We have 24 new trees to plant including 9 Apple, 5 Plum, 5 Cherries, 3 Pear and 2 crab apples, so we have a lot to do. This is where you come in, we need as many people as possible to come along and help plant the trees, so do make sure you put the date and time in your diary. Please click on the title to find out more about this event and others.
We have had reports of a pike in Skottowes Pond. We haven’t seen it, have you? Please report any sightings to us via the Contact Us page.
Volunteers from the Friends of Lowndes Park have dug up the old cricket wicket and have made it ready for sowing wildflower seed. We hope that this will make for a colourful and interesting display during the coming year.
