Lowden

A very small settlement on the Donnybrook - Boyup Brook road, almost halfway between Donnybrook and Mumballup - beautiful countryside. This is more of a district rather than a townsite as apart from the store, surrounding areas are farms and their buildings. Lowden is in the Preston Valley, indeed the Preston River flows just north of the store. The locality is one gateway to the Ferguson Valley which is just north of here. The origin of the name is unknown
