Lyme Park: the important details
When: Saturday 2 May 2020
Where: National Trust Lyme Park, Disley, Stockport, Cheshire SK12 2NR
Walk start time: 11am
Cost: Adults: £10 online, £12 on the day, Children (under 16): free
Distance: approx. 3km or approx. 5km
Minimum Sponsorship: No minimum sponsorship but if you raise more than £50 you'll receive an exclusive Great British Dog Walk certificate
Terrain: Both routes are over varied terrain and with uneven areas, some stiles and challenging steep climbs (especially the longer route). For this reason we recommend that these walks are not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs. The ground floor of the House and parts of the gardens at Lyme are suitable. Please contact us with any mobility queries.
Parking: Some limited parking is available on site and included in the entry fee.
However, where possible please make use of the free park & ride service from Hazel Grove which is available on Saturday 2nd May specifically to serve the Great British Dog Walk (usually a Sunday/Bank Holiday service only).
The park and ride can be found at Macclesfield Rd, Hazel Grove, Stockport SK7 6AE and takes around half an hour. Further information can be found here https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/lyme/features/free-bus-service-from-local-park-and-ride-to-lyme
More: This is a great opportunity to explore the stunning grounds of National Trust Lyme Park with guidance and expertise from the estate’s ranger team. There will be a Hearing Dog demo and a talk from the Lyme rangers before the walk starts so get your tickets and we shall see you there!
National Trust members – please bring your card to be scanned at the gate as Lyme receive benefits from the National Trust for every member that does so, regardless of this being a separately ticketed event.
Because of the number of dogs expected, we do ask that dogs are kept on lead for the duration of the walk.
Get sponsored and help Oscar become a hearing dog!
We’d really love for you or your dog to be sponsored.
Every penny raised will help Oscar become an amazing hearing dog – and help more deaf people leave loneliness behind.*
If you raise over £50, we will send you a special Great British Dog Walk certificate to say thank you!
*Any extra money raised will help train more hearing dogs.
A great day out for all the family!
"It’s lovely to see so many local people with their dogs supporting such a wonderful charity. Hearing Dogs help deaf people leave loneliness behind, and the Great British Dog Walk is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the work they do as well as getting your dog sponsored to help raise vital funds." - Rachel Riley, TV presenter
