Have a look at the National Trust page for Lyme Park – a stately home near Manchester, to get a feel for what the Park looks like.

Now go to streetmap.co.uk and search for Lyme Park (which is in Cheshire).

You can explore Lyme Park on various maps using the Zoom Control:

The 1:50 000 map is an Ordnance Survey map which shows you grid references, contours and the boundary of the National Trust land (shaded purple).

The 1: 25 000 map is also an Ordnance Survey map with more detail. The boundary of the National Trust park is now shown as a dashed pink line.

Think about the following items:

  • A wind turbine

  2. Suggest a six-figure grid reference for somewhere in Lyme Park that would be a good place to situate a wind turbine ___________________
  • A bench
