Having written an initial summary of the history of Lymore Hall for The Crier newsletter’s Faces and Places feature, Montgomery resident Oliver Lewis has decided to progress his research to an extended booklet, ‘A Brief and Interesting History of Lymore Hall.’
He explained, “This will be a historical, architectural and social history of this beautiful building, which for three centuries and more was at the heart of our community.”
At the moment, Oliver is keen to collect information and see artefacts relating to the hall. He has discovered that there are a lot of items of interest held at the V&A Museum, for example, but Oliver is also keen to hear from people in and around Montgomery. He appeals, “I would welcome any anecdotes, photographs, papers, maps etc. owned personally (and to be supplied on a loaned-basis only) which can inform the historical record of Lymore Hall, its extensive gardens, its ‘pools’ and the Estate more generally, including the cricket ground and surrounding woods.”
Any contribution, whether of knowledge or a loan of items, will be acknowledged in the booklet, which will be made available for sale.
