Visiting The Cage - Lyme Park
The Cage at Lyme Park was originally built around 1580 as a hunting lodge where the ladies of the estate could watch the hunt.
At night it was used as a banqueting hall. It overlooks the nearby moors and 1,300 acres of park land.
In later years it was used as a game keeper’s residence and as a jail for poachers. The tower was recently featured as a film location in the 2011 supernatural thriller – The Awakening.
