Holmfirth and Lyme Park

On Sunday, 7th May, we had a quiet day. So nice to relax a little after driving. We just went into Holmfirth nearby and bought some groceries. There just happened to be a folk festival on there with some very interesting dancing and costumes.

 I did appreciate the knitted bunting. In the evening we wandered to our local pub and had a delicious Sunday roast.
On Monday, we drove to Lyme House. What a lovely house to visit. Inside they had the story of Thomas Legh who inherited the house when he was 5 years old. He was the oldest son but was illegitimate and his father had 6 other children all by different mothers! The best part was the outside as this was the house used in the BBC series of Pride and Predjudice. Mr Darcy also walked out of the lake here! 

There was also some lovely embroidery in the house.

We then went into Buxton for a look around and afternoon tea and then headed home.
