Lymm Dam is a popular attraction, offering nature lovers the opportunity to experience its true magnificence and beauty.
This peaceful 17-hectare site recently won a Green Flag Award and allows visitors access to a large body of water for a spot of pond dipping, wildlife spotting e.g. kingfishers, or just to enjoy a tranquil walk near the dam and in the surrounding countryside to spot some Grey squirrels. Dare to venture out at night and you may even encounter a bat or two swooping above the tree tops.
As you can see, there’s something for all the family to enjoy, making a trip here a good choice for a budget friendly day. Whether you enjoy cycling, walking, horse riding, or just relaxing and appreciating the beautiful surroundings, the Dam makes for a great day out. It is considered some of the best angling in the North West, catering for all abilities.
