Lymm Dam

Lymm Dam is situated near Lymm in Cheshire. It was built in 1824 to carry a road from Warrington to Stockport. This is now the A56.

Construction of the dam resulted in valley flooding and creation of a lake. The dam, lake, and surrounding woodland are now a country park popular with families and dog walkers.
