Restoration Projects 

Mount

The Mount was created in the seventeenth century with soil from the creation of Curtains’ Pond and served as a prospect mount, as opposed to a fortified mount. It provided a marvellous viewing point to the sea and to the 3-mile-gallop in the grounds, where the Cliftons raced their horses.

Built into the Mount was an ice house, using imported ice to keep perishables fresh for longer. Remains of the ice house were excavated in 2014 and are preserved under the earth.

Our Volunteers regularly maintain the pathways and foliage to ensure the mounts long term future.

Planting & Weeding

We don't just take trees and rhodondendrons out, we also plant trees and bulbs. Here are photos of planting done by volunteers, like yew hedges in the South Prospect, apple trees and spring bulbs in the parterre garden. As part of the restoration, this area has truly been transformed. And of course, the mowing of grass and the weeding hardly ever stops.

Kitchen Garden Project

This project has been made possible by a generous grant of £10,000 from Tesco's bags of Help appeal. 

Work on the kitchen garden project is ongoing.

We are growing salad leaves, herbs and cut flowers for use in the tea room, and inspire people to take an interest in horticulture. The fresh produce will offer a nice addition to the tea room menu.

Forestry Commission Woodland Grant Scheme

Lytham Hall is benefiting from a five year grant from the Forestry Commission to improve and maintain the parkland. This schemes runs from 2014-2019 and will see 4 km of new paths created, drainage improvements, maintenance of rides, and provision of waymarkers, benches, and bird boxes among other targets.

Path Creation

To make the parkland more accessible, we have been able to use the  woodland grant to create more paths, which are accessible to more users all year around. There are still plenty of more natural woodland paths through the grounds, which can get very muddy indeed.

Boathouse Restoration

Our volunteers Alan & Peter are doing a superb job on the old boathouse.
They have removed tons of debris and recovered 100’s of bricks and slates from the lake and undergrowth. Every one has been cleaned, stacked and stored.
The old tiled path on the west side has been saved and is now protected by boarding to prevent further damage.
