Lest We Regret

Lacey no more, but green for ever,
This the link we ne'er must sever
With our vast heritage,
The lacemakers gone from the cottage door,
The hedger and ditcher are seen no more,
The bodger and thatcher are gone from the scene,
But their spirit still lingers in Lacey Green,
Let the mill stand - staunch reminder
That this is the realm of corn and the binder;
Of farm and forge amid tall beech trees,
Chapel and church and cricket teas,
And, if you know where,
beer straight from the cellar,
With maybe a yarn of old Tom Weller.
Lest the cancerous hand of industrial sprawl
Should spread its fingers O'er Grimsdyke wall,
Changing brick and flint into dark concrete,
Loosley Row into busy street,
Let's make the summit of our endeavour
That Lacey Green should stay green for ever.
W A. Bradley

Welcome

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.

Our Villages from the East
Our Villages looking East

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

Sunsets

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.

 

New Residents Welcome

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

We have a comprehensive Welcome Pack delivered by Mike, 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.

 

What you'll find on the site

Windmill

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

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 colour. We have pages for all the village clubs including amateur dramatics, a choir and indoor bowls to name only a few; an ever expanding History section, and for our Advertisers.

Can't find a house-name - we have published a house-name directory which we are updating - select House Finder from mainmenu.

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

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