About Lymm

Lymm Cheshire Village

A place of running water

Lymm of Celtic origins set in the heart of Cheshire in the North West of England literally means as a "place of running water". This probably stems from the fact that a stream runs through the village centre, although the name is even more apt today because the Bridgewater Canal also passes through, which is an easy detour from the Trans Pennine Trail. The charming village is home (or has been home) to numerous famous celebrities and was once mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 where the name appears as "Lime". The village, which has great transport links, is located about 24 Km south west of Manchester, 8 Km from Warrington and 49 Km from Liverpool. It has the atmosphere of a small town, boasting a population of over 12000. Lymm has a Twin Town; Meung-sur-Loire, in central France.
