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

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, originally owned by the Smith-Barry family. The hall became a country club in the 1930s, and then a POW camp during the Second World War. After this the hall served as a hostel for ICI employees during its considerable post-war expansion. By the 1960s the hall had fallen into disrepair and had to be demolished. Marbury is now managed by Cheshire West and Chester Council as a country park.

The park has over 3 miles of easy access pathway; these paths weave from Budworth Mere, through the ancient woodland and out to open parkland.
