This is the back of the hall, with the lake in front. This is the lake that D'Arcy fell into in the BBC's 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, which was filmed at Lyme Hall. The Hall being Pemberley in the production.

- Historical Travel
Lyme Hall has parts of it which are from sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth century.
It belonged to the Legh family for over 600 years!!!!!!
It was transformed by a venetian architect called Leoni into an Italianate palace.
In 1946 it was given to the National Trust who now own it but it is also funded by Stockport Borough Council.
In fact we stopped in front of the Hall just for a few minutes with Laura (Hayward68) when she came to visit last year. That was May though and it hadnt been snowing then!!!!!
There are various opening times for the park and the hall. It is better to check before you go for times.
At the moment the hall is undergoing some restoration.

A Haven for Hikers
With so much parkland, woods, fields and moors to explore Lyme Park can be quite busy but because of its size you can literally be on your own.
The views whichever way you look are breathtaking.
