Let’s Go Trip to Lytham

Forty-nine members enjoyed the June sunshine on the Fylde coast recently. They spent leisure time in the leafy town of Lytham, mentioned in the Domesday Book, before visiting the Grade 1 listed Lytham Hall, a Georgian mansion situated in 78 acres of parkland and former home of the Clifton family, where they had a tour of the property. In 1752, Thomas Clifton commissioned architect John Carr of York to build a new house which took 12 years to complete. The house has changed little over the years and Carr’s magnificent plasterwork and Gillow furniture can still be seen.
