Lowsonford

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.

  1. What wonderful memories come flooding back while gazing at the pictures, Can clearly remember the pub and canal that was at one time not used by navigational boats.Spent many happy hours on the canal at Lowsonford fishing when it was very silted up in the mid 50s was in my early teens then and now in my seventies but the memories of this magical place are always in my mind Thank you again Bill
