The village of Lymm is a designated conservation area which is noted for its many historic buildings such as the French style terracotta former town hall, its listed churches such as St Peter's church, and St Mary's Church which overlooks Lymm Dam. Lymm Cross is a Grade I listed structure dating from the 17th century, next to which stand the village stocks which are Grade II listed.
