The National Trust group returned to Cheshire for the August trip visiting Lyme Park. Travelling across the Peak District to reach the venue we were met as usual by a National Trust member of staff who gave out tickets for the House tour and gave a brief outline of the estate.
The estate is vast and covers over 1,400 acres. The group spent the day touring the large and lovely Lyme House with its wonderful rooms. Many members attended a talk on the history of the estate given by a very enthusiastic speaker.
There was also the opportunity to follow some lovely walks, explore the lakeside paths or woodland areas.
A large courtyard in the house also contained several places to eat, gift shops and book shops along with a chapel.
Safely back on the coach for four o’clock we returned via the Derbyshire countryside to arrive safely back in Hucknall before six o’clock.
