Welcome to our village Home Page

The villages of Lacey Green and Loosley Row are set together in the heart of the Chiltern Hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty where you can catch frequent sights of wildlife ranging from deer and foxes to the growing population of Red Kites, previously extinct in England.

The picture below is a view of our villages from Lodge Hill and you can look the other way at the bottom of this page - this is just one of the views from the top of the Village which is as good a reason to live here as any.

Lacey Green from Lodge Hill

Typical sunsets after a nice day

We also have a renowned School, numerous walks and the oldest Smock Windmill in England.


Then there is the flora with a varied selection of wild flowers, some unique to the area.


We get bad weather like anywhere else but the main problem can be strong winds which, squeezing through a narrower space at the top of the hill, can damage plants and fetch off the odd roof tile. Getting out can also be difficult if it snows as many side roads slope down the hill but fortunately there are strategically placed salt bins for residents to use.

Notwithstanding being a little higher up on a nice day the evening sky in the West remains blue long after sunset, the latter frequently being a view in itself.

Not often this strong.

The amateur radio aerial in this picture is no longer on Lacey Green skyline having been dismantled in 2016.


What you can find on the site

The oldest Smock Windmill in England

This site started in June 2008 and continues to grow. With time it will provide as much information about the village and surrounding area as one might anicipate people will want to know.

In fact we welcome suggestions on content. Please use the contact us page for any contributions.

We have a Places of Local Interest page and a Hallmark archive - the latter is our village magazine and the later versions are in full colour. We have pages for all the village clubs, with an expanding history section, and for our advertisers.

We have published a house name directory which we are updating.

So if you need something to do or someone to do something, its all here.

Village news and all the Club events will be ever changing features so if you have nothing to do or want to plan ahead, check here first.

New Residents Welcome

If you become aware of someone just moved into the Villages please e-mail: Tony Molesworth. Names are not essential, just the address.

We have a comprehensive Welcome Pack delivered by Tony, full of local information which all new visitors have been pleased to receive. We also feel, and hope they do too, that this is a wonderful gesture.

Shopping

We hope you are making use of the Store. It is well stocked with items that are most needed on a day to day basis and prices are competitive. There is something for every one ranging from pet food to sweets, washing powder to biscuits.

If you think other items should be stocked, please let us know and we will do our best to include them.

We do not sell alcohol and cigarettes as these pose a security risk but most other non-perishable items are on display.

The shop is run by a team of volunteers under the control of the Lacey Green Community Planning Group and is also supported by the Village Hall Committee. We can always use more volunteers, so if you would like to help please e-mail: Angela Roberts
