CLA Midlands: Derbyshire & Cheshire AGM & Visit to Lyme Park

Lyme Park is a 1400 acre estate nestled at the edge of the peak district, surrounded by an ancient deer park. The magnificent house is considered to be the largest house in Cheshire and boasts 17 acres of formal gardens. Originally a hunting lodge and later transformed into a family home, Lyme has undergone extensive alterations since the 1400s. Notable architects were employed to transform the house into the magnificent mansion you see today. Lyme was owned by the Legh family for 600 years until it was gifted to the National Trust in 1946. Most notably the exterior of Lyme Park was used as the backdrop for BBC’s 1995 television adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice.

 We will have exclusive use of Lyme Hall for the visit and we will be provided with guided tours of the house, gardens and wider estate. Our expert guides will provide us with information on the conservation and restoration efforts which go into maintaining the vast estate as part of the Park’s Conservation Management Plan.
