Whilst many of the world's largest conurbations have underground railways Lymm has, since the withdrawal of rail services in 1962, unfortunately gone without!
However, here is a faithfully drawn map based on the geography of Lymm including where the stations would likely be! The names of the lines are based on local geography/history, designation of the water courses, Lymm Dam and canals etc. Additionally water boat and cable car services are also shown.
From the map you will of course be able to work out that a journey from L.A. (Latchford area of course!) to Lymm RFC would involve a six station journey to Brookfield, a short hop on the Bollin to Central and six stops down on the Domville to Lymm RFC (which of course has extra services on match day)!
This map would make a lovely display in any home with its vibrant colours, interesting local information and, above all, it is a bit of fun for us all to imagine "what if" and of course MIND THE GAP!
The map of Lymm Underground is a high quality fine art print (A2 sized) on 180 gsm art paper suitable for display and costs £20.
It is available from Mike Cochrane either from eBay or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If ordering directly by email please leave your name, address and phone number and if you are in the Lymm area the map will be delivered to you directly.
