Lymm is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Warrington, Cheshire, England, which includes the hamlets of Booths Hill, Broomedge, Church Green, Deansgreen, Heatley, Heatley Heath, Little Heatley, Oughtrington, Rushgreen, and Statham. In the United Kingdom census of 2021, its population was 12,700.

Celtic in origin, the name Lymm means “place of running water” and is likely derived from an ancient stream that ran through the center of the village. The village is listed as “Limme” in the 1086 Domesday Book.

Before the Industrial Revolution, Lymm was an agricultural village. The Industrial Revolution brought the Bridgewater Canal and the Warrington and Altrincham Junction Railway to Lymm. The town played an important role in the cotton industry, and many of its residents were fustian cutters.

The Lymm Heritage Centre, which opened in June 2017, is located on Legh Street in the heart of the village. It features local history-related exhibitions and activities for schools and visitors.

The Times and The Sunday Times selected Lymm as one of the ‘Best Places to Live’ in their 2017 list.

The borough of Warrington divides the village between the Lymm South ward and the Lymm North and Thelwall ward. Lymm South has two councillors, one Liberal Democrat and one Conservative, as a result of the 2021 local elections, whereas the Lymm North and Thelwall ward has three councillors who are all Liberal Democrats.

Additionally, there is a 12-member Lymm Parish Council. After the 2021 elections, there are eleven Liberal Democrats and one Conservatives on the council.

Lymm is paired with Meung-sur-Loire, an ancient French village and commune located near Orléans.
