Welcome to England’s largest festival of history and culture!

Every September thousands of volunteers across England organise events to celebrate our fantastic history and culture. It's your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – all of which are FREE to explore.

Nationally the Festival runs from September 10th to September 19th.  This year's contribution from Lymm is



It takes place on September 17th 

Three tours 2pm, 4pm and 6pm ( approx 90 minutes)

Lymm Hall, once the home of the village’s founding family, is now the offices of Ecospheric - one of the UK’s leading sustainability consultancies. This Grade II* listed building, which houses a number of ancient scheduled monuments, is being carefully retrofitted with the aim of achieving
a zero energy renovation. Research shows listed buildings and those in conservation areas have a significantly lower uptake of energy efficiency measures. This project will bring together experts in heritage and the built environment to ensure this Elizabethan-era manor house, and other historic buildings, will play an important role in meeting the UK’s targets for a sustainable and zero carbon future.
On this tour, participants will learn about the history of the hall from guides at the Lymm Heritage Centre where the tour begins, followed by a tour of the hall led by Ecospheric’s director and principal sustainability consultant. 

11/08.  The event was fully booked within a couple of hours of being publicised on 10/08. We also now have a substantial waiting list in case of any cancellations.  There are not likely to be any extra visits in the immediate future as the project is very much work in progress. If you would like to go on our mailing list we will notify you of any future events including any further opportunities to visit the hall.
