Bridlepath, Marbury Country Park, taken 5 years ago
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.
