Lymm Dam is the name of a dam and lake in Lymm, Cheshire, England, an inset village in the greenbelt around Warrington. It was created in 1824 by a dam built during the construction of what is now the A56 road, when local inhabitants objected to initial plans for a route through the village centre. It may have been used to supply power to local industry, and the surrounding area.
Warrington Borough Council began managing the Lymm Dam and its park in the early 1980s. At that time there were considerable erosion problems and the Ranger Service began to upgrade the existing path network and take over the park maintenance. It is now a popular visitor attraction, which has won several Green Flag Awards for its improvements to the infrastructure and ecology of the dam.

  • Lymm is a very old village which has numerous attractions and walks. There's the bridge water canal with its narrow boats and lymm dam with walks around its lake. Lots of restaurants to choose from...

  • I frequent Lymm Dam often as I am an angler. The fishing pegs / stands are in a reasonable condition, but could do with updating, or at least maintaining a little better. The dam itself is well...

  • Great walk❤️ scenery is stunning, swans around. Definitely be back. Free Parking on the main road, literally next to the dam
  • Lovely place in autumn or any time of the year actually. Walk down to the lower dam for a nice coffee to finish the walk off. 🦆
