Lowther Honeybee

Large Daffodil designed by:

Jim Lowther

Glazed by: Helen Ratcliffe

Jim owns Lowther Castle and manages the Lowther Estates, which have been in his family since an original grant by Edward I in 1283. Jim’s work at Lowther has focused on diversifying the estates’ businesses away from the production of commodities (such as timber, minerals and agricultural products) to the provision of ecosystem services and the conservation of historic property. As a mountaineer, Jim has explored and climbed in the world’s greater ranges – including Greenland, the Himalaya, Karakoram, Tibet and the Alps. During these expeditions he discovered a love of wild-ness. Witnessing how other cultures have treated their landscapes has influenced Jim’s thinking about how the Lowther Estates could be repaired.

Combined with his passion for keeping honeybees, Jim’s strategy is to place nature recovery at the heart of his philosophy of estate management.

Proceeds from the sale of Jim’s daffodil will go to James’ Place
