i have a htaccess file that does this,

AuthUserFile /var/www/servers/.htpasswd
AuthName "Not worth looking at really, so go away"
AuthType Basic

<Limit GET POST>
require valid-user
</Limit>

but in a lower directory, i do not need to require basic auth, but i cant seem to override the directive in the .htaccess and it asks users for a password.

i have tried such directives as
allow all

and

Anonymous nobody

but it stills ask for a username/password

I cant change the structure of the site so i really have to solve this, thanks

You might want to create a .htaccess file in that directory, or any directory beneath the one protected with only "Satisfy Any" in it.  Any of course any other Apache directive can be added too.

More detailed discussion at Apache's website.
