Map of the Park

The Northwich Woodlands is an area of vibrant and accessible countryside stretching from the town�s doorstep to Marbury Country Park. An extensive network of paths provides the opportunity for exploration by foot, bicycle or on horseback. The area can also be enjoyed whilst cruising down the Trent and Mersey canal or River Weaver Navigation. These two historic waterways are linked by the famous Anderton Boat Lift; a feat of Victorian engineering.
