New electronic security gates planned for historic hall


PLANS have been submitted for new entrance gates for historic Lymm Hall following reports of unauthorised people being found on the grounds.

The new gates would be constructed of metal and replace a timber gate at the main entrance to the hall off Rectory Lane, Lymm, which provides little or no security to residents of the hall and other historic buildings within the grounds.

A number of unauthorised persons have been found in the grounds in recent times.

The new gates will be electronically operated by the residents and will be designed in a traditional style, reflecting the historic importance of the hall and other building within the grounds.

Lymm Hall, a Grade 2* Listed building, is now divided into two dwellings and there are three other dwellings within adjoining buildings.
Parts of the hall date from the 15th century but it has been remodeled

over the centuries.

The grounds also contain a number of other historic items, including a dried moat, an Ice House and a pair of cockpits.

Warrington Borough council planners are to consider the proposals soon.
