LYME PARK 5k parkrun # 105
Saturday 26th March 2015

Lyme. Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme was once home to the Legh family and, in its heyday a great sporting estate.
Step back in time to the Edwardian era – Lyme’s ‘Golden Era’. Enjoy lavish interiors, try out the piano, read a book in the library, or take the children to play in the nursery and the school room.
The 1,300 acre estate with its medieval herd of red deer offers fantastic walks and stunning views.

For a more tranquil walk explore the Edwardian rose garden, ravine garden or luxurious herbaceous borders next to the reflecting lake where a certain Mr Darcy met Miss Bennet in the BBC production of ‘Pride and Prejudice’.
