Lymm Heritage Centre
A fascinating insight into the history of this attractive village - its Trades, Transport and Traditions. Lymm was the first village to have an industrial canal driven through its heart in the 1760s. It brought prosperity for a few but also turned the village into a centre for the fustian cutting trade, which meant grinding poverty for many. Gold beating and salt extraction were also important industries in the first half of the twentieth century.
Lymm has always been famed for its traditional events and celebrations too from Rushbearing led by the Lymm Morris to May Queen which started life in the 1880s as a Temperance Festival.
We tell all these stories through artefacts, models, video and fascinating storyboards. Our volunteers are always keen to share their knowledge too.
