Lyme Park is one the most popular walking destinations in Cheshire and the Peak District, we pick some of our favourite routes in the area.
Start from Nelson Pit Visitor Centre in Higher Poynton which follows onto Lyme Park and onto the iconic Cage which rewards with views of the surrounding countryside.
This walk from Disley takes in some of the early stretches of the Gritstone Trail, ascending to Black Rocks from where you can look down over the Cheshire Plain and then turn round to see the Peak District rising behind you.
This walk takes you up to the Bowstones, around two reservoirs, through some woodland and open moorland and back via a grassy ridge where you can explore more of Lyme Park.
The Lantern is not as famous as the other folly within the grounds of Lyme Park, but this walk by the National Trust allows you to the lesser explored areas to the east of Lyme Hall.
All the routes were correct at the time of publication, over time access to certain parts of the walk may be subject to change.
