About Us

Join the hunt for lost words through the house and grounds of the Lyme estate.

Inspired by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris's spell book, The Lost Words, the National Trust’s fun new trail with art installations conjures up a vanishing natural vocabulary that is being lost as children spend less time outdoors. Yet, it seems, all is not lost; young explorers can pick up a booklet to create spells to bring nature’s language back to life. Keep your eyes peeled, there are hidden words everywhere, at the spinning zoetrope in the Orangery, the willow sculptures by the Reflection Lake, even etched on an old stump. And those endangered terms will pop up elsewhere later this year and next, at Quarry Bank and Dunham Massey.
