Lowsonford is 4 miles North-East of Henley-in-Arden.

The Stratford Canal passes through the village.

The village is well known because of the Fleur de Lys pub, visible at the left of this picture. In the 1950's the pub started making meat pies, which was an innovative idea at the time. The Fleur de Lys meat pies are now a nationally known brand.

At the right is a barrel-roofed lockkeeper's cottage.

The boats moored in the background are moored opposite the Fleur de Lys canalside inn.
