Discover the follies and structures on Lyme's landscape
Lyme has a rich history spanning across six centuries, under the ownership of one family. Each generation has left their mark, slowly taming the wild medieval hunting ground into a designed landscape of follies and views.
Structures were built at strategic spots around the park to draw the eye across the landscape. Find out more about the buildings you see at Lyme and how they were used as well as structures no longer there, or were they ever there at all?
Generations made their mark on Lyme, making the most of hills and valleys, woodlands and clearings to create designed sight lines across the park and subsequent beautiful views. Here are some of our favourite views that have been created just for our enjoyment.
