Abstract

A survey of the documentary material relating to the history of Lyme Park in Cheshire(SJ 965 824) was carried out as the first stage of a landscape survey by Oxford Archaeology North (formerly Lancaster University Archaeological Unit) on behalf of the National Trust. The study follows on from a documentary study by Elizabeth Banks Associates (Banks 1993) and it was required by the National Trust brief (1995) that there should not be substantial new research or re-writing of the earlier work. The bulk of the documentary material in this report is taken from archaeological archive collections, particularly the Cheshire County Sites and Monuments Record and the National Monuments Record held by the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England at Swindon. Additional previously unpublished material was found in a number of archives but primarily within the Legh Papers held by the Greater Manchester County Record Office and the archive held at Lyme Park. The principal material resource provided by the National Trust is a survey of the landscape of the Park carried out by Elizabeth Banks Associates. The report was originally submitted in 1996, but was then revisited and enhanced in 2006 to produce the present final version.
