Loudwater Farm was first discovered in 1971 by a small, visionary group of Subud members who renovated what was at the time the derelict old farmhouse into the beautiful vibrant community centre that it is today.

Generations of people have since enjoyed the serenity of the place and many people remember fondly the camaraderie of working on a project, others their childhood memories of camping in the grounds and playing in the river.

At the core of activity at Loudwater Farm is the local Subud group. The farm has served as a venue for group latihans and medium sized Subud meetings for many years. Equally Loudwater has naturally served the wider international Subud community acting, as a place of rest for those on their travels around the world due to its convenient location near to London's major airports. It is one of the most well known and well loved Subud houses in the world and it continues to cater for the needs of the group, as well as of frequent regional, national and international meetings.

Over twenty years ago the group began establishing relations with local residents, groups and businesses, generating an income for the upkeep of the farm and creating a valuable asset for the local community.

Our Three Aims...

1. To improve the facilities for medium sized events and gatherings as well as for the local group.

2. To fully develop its capacity as a Training and Educational Centre.

3. To support the local Community and Social Projects.
