General information[edit]

Land by Antony Gormley

The most famous of Lowsonford's buildings is the "Fleur de Lys" pub which is known for its meat pies. Every two years there is a Flower Show which is run jointly with the neighbouring settlement of Rowington which holds it in the other years.

In May 2015 an Antony Gormley statue of an iron man was placed by the canal lock here. It was removed in May 2016.[1]

Geography[edit]

The Stratford-upon-Avon Canal runs through Lowsonford, and there are several locks.

The village hall was built in 1936 and its main room can seat 75 people. The village church is dedicated to St Luke.
