Welcome!

Holt Lowes is an area of heathland, woodland and bog lying just south of the town of Holt in North Norfolk. Covering 49.7 hectares, it was established as a 'Poors' Allotment' in 1807 under the stewardship of the Trustees. More recently it has come to be recognised as an outstanding site for wildlife, and is designated as an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and as an SAC (Special Area of Conservation).

Read on to discover more about its Location, about Access to the Lowes, its History, the Wildlife (including the spectacular Adder), the important Conservation and Management work undertaken on the Lowes, and admire our Galleries.
