Visit: Lyme Park -The House in Winter
| Lyme Park
Tuesday 16 November 2010
The front door is locked, the visitors have gone and the housekeeping team are working on essential conservation. Wrap up in warm clothing and join Amy, the House and Collections Manager, and Claire, the House Steward, for this exclusive glimpse of what it takes to clean, repair and manage the largest house in Cheshire. The mile-long drive to Lyme Park creates a real sense of anticipation, which the house more than matches. Originally Tudor, it now resembles a fabulous Italianate palace, with Mortlake tapestries, an important collection of clocks and the Art Funded Sarum Missal.
