Further information

Slitten gorge & the remains of the Slitting Mill are well worth including on a longer walk, the area tends to be quiet when other areas around the village are crowded. The access down from Whitbarrow road is steep (e.g. you would have to carry a push chair), but the gorge is a lovely contrast to the nearby village centre. Accessible access via Dane Bank road. has more information on the area here.

The Lymm Archive (Lymm Heritage Centre) has photos showing earlier excavations here

Parking - please use the village centre car parks
