Lyme Park House Disley, Cheshire. ( National Trust )

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Lyme Park is a large estate located south of Disley, Cheshire. The estate is managed by the National Trust and consists of a mansion house surrounded by formal gardens, in a deer park in the Peak District National Park.[1] The house is the largest in Cheshire and has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building.

The estate was granted to Sir Thomas Danyers in 1346 and passed to the Leghs of Lyme by marriage in 1388. It remained in the possession of the Legh family until 1946 when it was given to the National Trust. The house dates from the latter part of the 16th century. Modifications were made to it in the 1720s by Giacomo Leoni, who retained some of the Elizabethan features and added others, particularly the courtyard and the south range. It is difficult to classify Leoni's work at Lyme, as it contains elements of both Palladian and Baroque styles.[a] Further modifications were made by Lewis Wyatt in the 19th century, especially to the interior. Formal gardens were created and developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The house, gardens and park have been used as locations for filming and they are open to the public. The Lyme Caxton Missal is on display in the Library.

Nice shot Richard. I have spent a very pleasant hour within your gallery and I congratulate you on the variety and quality of your shots. You clearly get around a fair bit and I really like your Lyme Park shots which I really regard as an extension to my back garden and is where I walk the dog four days a week!

I also particularly like your Staithes images - we have had a cottage in Whitby for the last few years and every time I have tried to photograph in Staithes there has been a fog, or mist or sea fret or whatever they call it!!!

Anyway, congratulations on a fine and interesting gallery.

Cheers from Cheshire

I'm very honored Jeff that you've enjoyed looking through my gallery, we found Lyme Park very enjoyable to walk round, and it's a place we will visit again soon. Staithes is not far from where we live, so i'll be back with more pictures i hope??..many thanks Jeff..Regards Richard

We usually go to Whitby in May, but this year we are going in June, so maybe - just maybe - Staithes may be visible when we are there!!!

Regards Jeff
