About our weekend at Marbury Country Park
At Marbury Country park you can wander along the mere with splendid views over the water to the church at Great Budworth, or explore the arboretum and community orchard. Children will enjoy the play area, close to the picnic area. Many of the features of the Country Park, including the lime avenues and the arboretum, are a legacy of the days when Marbury was a grand estate. The last hall, built in the 1850s, was a fine looking house modelled on the French chateau at Fontainebleu, with an imposing carriage drive entrance.

The Friends of Anderton and Marbury (FOAM) are an active group who get involved in looking after both parks and have a busy programme of walks, talks, conservation tasks and events. Contact the Rangers for further details.

Marbury Country Park lies in the heart of Northwich Community Woodlands where former industrial land is gradually being transformed to create a rich and green environment stretching from Marbury to Northwich.

Exploring further a field:

The park sits within the Northwich Woodlands, an area of 350 hectares of parkland to explore and discover. Its network of surfaced paths provides many routes accessible to all and appeals to a variety of users including horseriders, cyclists, nature lovers and families.

The park also links in with the North Cheshire Way and a number of national cycling routes.
