Lymm canalside, Cheshire UK Colour IR

Newer Older

The name Lymm, is of Celtic origins, means a "place of running water" and is likely derived from an ancient stream that ran through the village centre. The Bridgewater canal (a rare one with no locks), runs through the village diagonally to the original stream.

Lymm village centre is a designated conservation area, notable for its historic buildings, both listed and unlisted. These include the French-style terracotta former Lymm Town Hall (currently unlisted); Oughtrington Hall & Lodge, formerly owned by a cadet branch of the Leigh family and now Lymm High School;

Lymm Hall, a former Domville family residence; Foxley Hall, home to a cadet branch of the ancient Booth family, before ownership passed to the Carlisle family is no longer standing, but fustian cutting cottages on Booth's Hill Road and Arley Grove do survive. The parish church of St Peter's Church, Oughtrington is an example of Gothic Revival architecture.

St Mary's Church, Lymm is next to Lymm Dam. By 1850 an earlier 14th century building was in disrepair, and the Newcastle architect John Dobson was commissioned to rebuild it. The 1521 tower was retained and raised, but the additional stonework meant that the tower had to be rebuilt in 1887.

Lymm's village cross, known simply as "The Cross", is a Grade I listed structure.

This is an infrared shot taken with a 720nm adapted SLR. It is more convenient to use than using a Hoya R72 for IR. This spring day was heavy in infrared.
