Views of the gardens at Lyme Park above, the photo to the left is the colourful sunken Dutch Garden. After being the location for 'Pemberley' in the 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice visitor numbers here soared as Lyme Park became a Mecca for fans of the series.
More photos above from the Orangery including the mosaic floor featured in the centre photo. Lyme Park is said to be haunted by a entire funeral procession, that of Sir Piers II who was killed in battle in Paris in 1422 but brought back to Cheshire for burial. It is reported that the procession is followed by a Lady dressed all in white, not Sir Pier's wife but his mistress Blanche.
There is a Victorian steam powered 'Golden Gallopers' at Lyme from 15th May until 6th June 2004, the ride was first built in 1895. Even if you don't enter the house or gardens (no dogs in both) the parkland at Lyme is a great place for walking and is home to herds of Red and Fallow Deer.
