Upper Park Meadow Area

Meadow in winter

Description

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.

Current condition

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.
