National Trust: Lyme Park Disley

At Aussie Dog Care we love regular trips to Lyme Park in Disley . If you scroll down below you can see our amazing day trip recently ay Lyme Park Disley , dog walking ! I actually used to live in Lyme Park! You can go on some many walks at Lyme Park in Disley and all the dogs are very tired out after their trip!

“Lyme Park is a large estate located south of DisleyCheshire. The estate is managed by the National Trust and consists of a mansion house surrounded by formal gardens, in a deer park in the Peak District National Park.[1] The house is the largest in Cheshire,[2] and is designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building.[3]

The estate was granted to Sir Thomas Danyers in 1346 and passed to the Leghs of Lyme by marriage in 1388. It remained in the possession of the Legh family until 1946 when it was given to the National Trust. The house dates from the latter part of the 16th century. Modifications were made to it in the 1720s by Giacomo Leoni, who retained some of the Elizabethan features and added others, particularly the courtyard and the south range. It is difficult to classify Leoni’s work at Lyme, as it contains elements of both Palladian and Baroque styles.[a] Further modifications were made by Lewis Wyatt in the 19th century, especially to the interior. Formal gardens were created and developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The house, gardens and park have been used as locations for filming and they are open to the public. The Lyme Caxton Missal is on display in the Library.” Quoted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyme_Park

The Countryside Code

On our walks at Aussie Dog Care with home boarding and dog walking clients we sometimes like to go off the beaten track in and around our local area of Romiley, Stockport. When you are in the countryside you have to abide by a certain code this being – The Countryside Code.  It is set for all members of the public to respect and enjoy the countryside.

Code Logo from http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/
Code Logo from http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/

This is the Countryside Code:

  • Be safe, plan ahead and follow any signs
    1. Take maps/guidebooks
    2. Be prepared for changes in weather
    3. Check the weather so you know what to expect
    4. Let someone know where you are going, how long you plan to be
    5. Learn signs and symbols used in the countryside
  • Leave gates and property as you find them
    1. Farmers may leave gates open to allow their animals to move – so leave an open gate open, and a closed gate closed
    2. Contact the local authority if you see a sign which may be misleading or illegal (e.g. Private, no entry – on a public footpath)
    3. Follow paths where crops are growing
    4. Use gates or stiles if possible, rather than climbing walls or fences, to avoid damage
    5. Don’t disturb ruins or historic sites
    6. Don’t interfere with machinery or livestock
  • Protect plants and animals and take your litter home
    1. Litter and leftover food spoils the beauty of the countryside
    2. Don’t damage, destroy or remove features such as rocks, plants and trees
    3. Give wild animals and farm animals plenty of space as they can behave unpredictably
    4. Be careful not to drop matches or smouldering cigarettes.
  • Keep dogs under close control
    1. By law, you must control your dog so that it does not disturb or scare farm animals or wildlife
    2. Farmers are, by law, entitled to destroy a dog that injures or worries their animals
    3. Always clean up after your dog and get rid of the mess responsibly
  • Consider other people
    1. Respect the needs of local people
    2. When riding a bike or driving a vehicle, slow down for horses, walkers and livestock and give them plenty of room
    3. By law, cyclists must give way to walkers and horse-riders on bridleways
    4. Support the rural economy – for example, buy your supplies from local shops

Taken from http://www.thethreepeakschallenge.co.uk/ . Even though this is taken from Three Peaks Challenge this code applies for any walk in the countryside.

Goyt Valley

 
At Aussie Dog Care we love our walks around the countryside and Goyt Valley is one of them . It is a beautiful place to go on a long walks with dogs or with the whole family.
“The Goyt Valley is located between Macclesfield and Buxton in the Peak District National Park, England. The valley is close to the Cheshire and Derbyshire county border.The River Goyt that flows through the valley rises high on Axe Edge Moor near the Cat and Fiddle Public House, (the second highest public house in England) and flows north through Taxal, Whaley Bridge and New Mills before joining with the River Tame near Stockport to form the River Mersey. This website concentrates on the area known as the Upper Goyt Valley close to the source of the River Goyt.” From http://www.goytvalley.co.uk/about.htm
Three Walks below from http://www.walkthehills.co.uk/peak%20district/three-goyt-valley-walks-shining-tor-cats-tor-windgather-rocks-taxal-moor.html
“Three walks based around the Goyt Valley’s excellent western ridge, stretching from Shining Tor in the south to Taxal Moor in the north. The walks all start in the valley itself between Fernilee and Errwood Reservoirs, and begin with an ascent to Shining Tor via the Stake Side/Shooter’s Clough ridge, followed by a stroll down the main ridge from Shining Tor to Pym Chair via Cats Tor.

Route 1 then returns via Foxlow Edge to Shooter’s Clough Bridge (as per the Goyt Valley Horseshoe) – this is a short but fantastic walk and probably the best walk when time’s short or as a great introduction to the mighty and all-conquering Goyt Valley

Route 2 continues north from Pym Chair, keeping on the moorland parallel to the minor road, until Windgather Rocks. This is a popular spot for climbers and a good place for a lunch stop. The route then heads east, past Taxal Moor Road and down into the valley. After crossing Mill Clough, a farm track then takes you to Fernilee Reservoir and the return stroll along the old railway line.

Route 3 continues from Windgather Rocks along the ridge of Taxal Moor (access land – no path marked on OS map, but it’s there on the ground) and then east back down to the River Goyt. The route then heads south along the river and Fernilee Reservoir. Great walking in one of the best areas of the Peak District.” From http://www.walkthehills.co.uk/peak%20district/three-goyt-valley-walks-shining-tor-cats-tor-windgather-rocks-taxal-moor.html
