There aren’t many places as popular as Marbury Country Park for walkers in Cheshire, every weekend the grounds are full of people enjoying the beautiful scenery or taking the opportunity to take their dogs for a walk.
The park is a few miles north of Northwich and was once formed the grounds of Marbury Hall, a now defunct country house that was originally owned by the Smith-Barry family. Within these grounds were an arboretum, a walled garden, an orchard and the 80 acre Budworth Mere, all of which remain today,
Long distance walkers can also join the North Cheshire Way which passes through Marbury Country Park, the 71-mile long footpath runs from Hooton Station in the Wirral to Disley which is on the edge of the Cheshire Peak District and close to Lyme Park.
Walking is not the only pastime you can enjoy here, there are a variety of visitors to the park including horseriders, cyclists, nature lovers looking for native wildlife and families who make use of the children’s play area and picnic area.
You should also take note that Marbury Country Park is not to be confused with the village of Marbury, which is just south of Malpas and close to the Shrophire border and is also a great place to walk with two meres of its own.
