Lyme Park a National Heritage

Here are folks in my family tree having fun during the Roaring Twenties. This is my Christmas present. Most of last year I worked on my imaginary British estate, paying much attention to the servants quarters. Now, I have a great model for my architectural hobby. Jane Lee’s son served in the House of Burgess. Lyme Park belongs to the little people – The Commoners – because it is part of the National Heritage. This is to say, my kindred are a part of the conversation being carried on across the water.

My great, great, great grandfather is James Rosamond. Jane Lee/Legh, is his grandmother. This goes for Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor. The movie Pride and Prejudice was filmed here. Lyme Park is my real Downton Abbey. Then, here come the American Revolution. My kin may be in the painting above. Col. George Wilson, and Col. John Wilson, were members of The House of Burgesses. I was born with the blood of Patriots. We made Virginia a great Colony and State. Our Nation’s First Leaders come from here.

Lyme Park is a large estate located south of Disley, Cheshire. The estate is managed by the National Trust and consists of a mansion house surrounded by formal gardens, in a deer park in the Peak District National Park.[1] The house is the largest in Cheshire,[2] and is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building.[3]

The estate was granted to Sir Thomas Danyers in 1346 and passed to the Leghs of Lyme by marriage in 1388. It remained in the possession of the Legh family until 1946 when it was given to the National Trust. The house dates from the latter part of the 16th century.

The National Heritage List for England (NHLE) is Historic England‘s official list of buildings, monuments, parks and gardens, wrecks, battlefields, World Heritage Sites and other heritage assets considered worthy of preservation. Properties on the list, or located within a conservation area, are protected from being altered or demolished without special permission from local government planning authorities.

The passage of the Ancient Monuments Protection Act 1882 established the first part of what the list is today, it established a list of 50 prehistoric monuments which were protected by the state. Further amendments to this act increased the levels of protection and added more monuments to the list. The Town and Country Planning Acts created the first listed buildings and the process for adding properties to it. As of 2018, more than 600,000 properties are listed individually. Each year additional properties are added to the National Register as part of the different constituent registers that are part of the list.

The National Heritage List for England was launched in 2011 as the statutory list of all designated historic places including listed buildings and scheduled monuments.[1]
