LYME PARK

LYME PARK

Lyme is a large estate that was owned by the Legh family from 1388 - 1946. The house dates from the late 16th century, but is mainly 17th and 18th century in style. The library displays the Lyme Caxton Missal - an early printed book published by William Caxton in 1487. Outside are huge formal gardens, surrounded by an enormous deer park. Plenty to see, plenty of places to walk. Lyme featured as 'Pemberley' in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice in which Colin Firth emerges from the lake.
