Tourist Information

Things to see and do in Higher Disley

The village of Disley is situated on the main A6 trunk road from Stockport to Buxton on the edge of the boundary between Greater Manchester and the High Peak district of Derbyshire.

The village was not mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086, but its history can be traced back to a time when it was merely a clearing in the ancient Forest of Macclesfield. The town's most important buildings include the parish church of St Mary, dated from around 1558 and the Ram's Head pub, an old Victorian coaching inn, built in a Tudor style, still complete with outer stables, on the corner of the old Roman Road over higher Disley. The village itself is an attractive stone built affair strung along the A6 highway, with a direct railway link to Buxton and Manchester, as well as being almost invisibly bypassed by the Upper Peak Forest Canal on its way to Bugsworth and the terminus at Whaley bridge..

Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme was once home to the Legh family and, in its heyday a great sporting estate. Step back in time to the Edwardian era - Lyme's 'Golden Era'. Enjoy lavish interiors, try out the piano, read a book in the library, or take the children to play in the nursery and the school room. The 1,300 acre estate with its medieval herd of red deer offers fantastic walks and stunning views.
