This afternoon we walked along the canal and followed the field footpaths to Lyme Park a beautiful mansion house set in a deer park with well laid out gardens. Ian had charge of the camera, so this is his view of the visit.
Our first view coming down the roadway.
The reflection lake
Inside the orangery
The house was used for filming Pride and Prejudice,(the Colin Firth version) as Pemberley.
It has many lovely tapestries, paintings, furniture and carvings.
There is a large herd of deer in the park and the house was built here because the deer were here. The estate was owned by the Legh family from the 1300's until 1946 when it was passed to the National Trust.
