Lymm Dam


Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

We spent the afternoon having a lovely walk around Lymm Dam.
It was cold and muddy, but dry so we wrapped up with hats and scarves and headed out.
We took lots of bread to feed the ducks and they certainly enjoyed it, almost as much as Megan and Ben enjoyed feeding them!
Megan was a bit freaked out by the swans, probably my fault as I don't like them, started by a flock of them chasing me years ago at Sale Water Park!
After feeding the ducks we strolled around the dam. It's a lovely walk, over little bridges with little waterfalls, fallen logs for climbing, and a few carved animals to spot too.
Ben was on the hunt for mice. He kept looking for 'mouse holes'!
Megan was looking for things to climb on and even climbed a tree!
We stopped and had a drink and some biscuits and talked about coming back when the weather was warmer for a picnic.
A fantastic afternoon stroll.
We also treated ourselves at 'The Gob Stopper.' This is a lovely sweet shop, with lots of sweets from long ago.
You can't go for a walk round Lymm Dam without stopping at the sweet shop too!
