Lyme Park - Sunday 2nd December

Post  Admin on Wed Sep 19, 2012 5:26 am

Lyme Park, East Lodge and The Cage
This is a brand new walk to the group, and as can be seen from the title of it above, it includes rather an interestingly sounding section known as 'The Cage'! The walk has been chosen as it is fairly close to Whaley Bridge where we have arranged a cruise and a meal for after the walk, and also because it is only 5 miles in length, which will be perfect to take us up to our 1pm sailing.

Here is how the walk is described by Walking World:-

This is a delightful walk within Lyme Park which takes in Lyme Hall, it's East Lodge and The Cage. The hall was originally a Tudor house but the Venetian architect Leoni re-designed it into a palace in the Italian style. The gardens have Victorian and Edwardian sections with other parts of a more modern style. You may well see some of the red and fallow deer in the parkland for they are everywhere, which is why the gates are sometimes locked and at others open. The Cage, reached towards the end of the walk, was built as a hunting tower, while the house featured as 'Pemberley' in the recent BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.

Details
Meet at the information centre in the car park of Lyme Hall at 9.30 for 9.45 start. The address is Lyme Park, Stockport SK12 2NX. The entrance to Lyme Park is on the A6, 12 miles north of Buxton.

It costs £5 pounds to park at Lyme Park unless you are a member of National Trust, I can't think of anywhere else to park so maybe we should take as few cars as poss.

I'll ask people at the social tonight Angela. We still don't get many people looking at the forum yet, so I doubt if anyone will know that you're looking for a lift.

What a brilliant day we have all had today, lovely walk lovely company and a nice meal this afternoon .The meal was spot on and nothing was too much trouble for the ladies looking after us aboard the Judith Mary. If only the everyday pace of life was 4mph.
Cracking day cheers again Steve n Andrea.x santa

A very special day indeed. For £12 I don't think you could better value for money anywhere than we got for a cruise and a meal today. The cruise staff were incredibly efficient and as Mark says the food was lovely. A really relaxing afternoon.

The walk was pretty good too (once we got going!) with some great views from up top, even as far as Liverpool apparently 345

Big thanks to Cherry for help with the route today, and to Darren for sorting the back end of the walk out. thank

Now, does anybody fancy doing it again after a Sunday walk in Summer as an evening excursion?

Must agree with you what a cracking day out for £12, smashing walk and the bonus of lovely warm stew and apple pie . Thanks every one, especially Steve and Andrea for organising it all. Would be good to do again on a lovely summers evening.

Thank you for a great day out. I don't know how you do it Steve, but the weather once again was fantastic !!!
Lovely walk and trip on canal and the food was good also the company. Yes a trip in the summer sounds good. Cherryxx

Lovely day, we all survived the slippy ice!! Great views all day and the view form the tower were fantastic and well worth the climb. Meal and Cruise were great too. Thanks to everyone for the grat company and to Steve and Andrea for organising. whee

Today was FAN TAS TIC! clap
Lyme Park was lovely and the house and hunting tower very impressive!
I think we did well to get over those slippy stiles without any mishaps!
The Judith Mary was very welcoming and the staff really looked after us. The meal was excellent really enjoyed my stew with lots of Hendersons and the apple was yummy too. And wasnt it nice of them to donate a bottle of wine. wine I took some photos which I will post tomorrow.

Thanks for organising this Steve and yes please put us down for doing it again!

I agree with everyone, it was a great day and the money we paid was minimal for the food and cruise.
The stiles were a bit of a nightmare but thankfully no injuries Smile
We must do this again sometime in the summer, and maybe do a slightly longer walk as the views were lovely. The drive through Glossop was stunning with the frost and ice.
Thankyou to everyone for making the day so special and being a fab bunch of friends cheers

Another excellent walk topped off by the narrow boat trip & meal - a fitting end to Maria's 2012 walks with the group. Thanks to Steve & Andrea for arranging.
