Stockport residents are being offered a free pass to Lyme Park after the National Trust teamed up with Stockport Council.

The free pass will allow free entry to the house and garden for two adults and children, and can be used throughout the year, excluding bank holiday weekends.

For those travelling by car there will be free entry for one vehicle.

The pass will be included in the summer issue of council magazine The Review, which will be delivered free to all Stockport households from next week.

It usually costs £7 to park a car at the park, while passes for family groups can cost up to £22.50, including access to the house and garden.

Councillor Sheila Bailey said: “It’s great news that residents will now have one day of free access per year to what is a stunning local asset which should be enjoyed by everyone.”

Lyme is owned and managed by the National Trust and partly financed by the council .
