About Lowdham

Lowdham is a village between Nottingham and Southwell.

The old church and the castle mound are to the west of the bypass. St Mary’s church dates back to before the 14th century.  To the north-east of the bypass is Lowdham Mill. There is now little sign of the frame knitting industry that was important in this area in the 19th century.

There are two main roads slicing through the village: the A6097 south-east to north-west dual carriageway and the A612 between Nottingham and Southwell. The Pathfinder bus line connects Lowdham with both Southwell and Nottingham. Lowdham railway station is on the Nottingham to Lincoln Line.

Village pubs are The Railway, The Old Ship Inn, the World’s End and the Magna Charta.  All have open lounge/bar layouts and are situated near the centre of the village. Other amenities include takeaways, general stores, a sub-post office as well as a Co-op supermarket, pharmacy and a variety of other shops.
