Disley Things to Do

    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.

    The Rams Head is a pub/restaurant situated right in the centre of Disley. It belongs to a chain called Vintage Inns.

    The food and service we have always found to be very good.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dish is the Hunters Chicken. Two chicken breasts with a BBQ sauce, cheesey mashed potatoes and vegetables.
    Followed by a few glasses of white wine :-)

    For a starter and main course the average price is approximately £12.00.

    Disley is only a small place but there are a few shops there. Also of course at the Hall there is a shop selling National Trust
    merchandise and also at the Old Workshop.

    This is a building in Disley which I liked.

    There are reported to be two ghosts at Lyme Hall.

    The first is of a 'lady in white' which has been seen inside and outside the hall. She had supposedly been the mistress of Sir Piers Legh who died in Paris in 1422 after fighting in the Battle of Meux.

    The second ghost is that of a priest whose skeletal remains were found under the floor boards of a secret room. When this ghost has been seen there is also heard the sound of bells.

    It was also in this room where his remains were found that Mary, Queen of Scots slept whilst imprisoned at Lyme Hall.

    This is the courtyard.

Disley Off The Beaten Path

  • The Canal

    On our way back to the car, the sun was going down and this is the view over the canal. It was beginning to freeze now and you can see the ice setting on the canal.

  • A canal walk

    We did not actually drive into the main gates of the park, but drove round the back way and parked in a place called Higher Poynton next to the Macclesfield Canal, which is in itself a lovely place also for a walk.

  • The Courtyard

    Photo taken in the courtyard looking back under the archway to the main gate. I suppose looking at these photos now and the time we spent here in Lyme Park my fondest memories are of our lovely dog Ted who died in May 2004. He enjoyed anywhere he could have a good romp.

  • The Cage

    A view from the cage looking out over the dam onto the hills of the Peak District. As you can see there is some snow on top of the hills, not enough to ski though! :-)

  • Nature

    I love trees and flowers so just wanted to show you this photo of these trees, even though it is winter time and no leaves are on it, it still looks wonderful.
