About Us

Anderton Nature Park is located next to the historic Victorian boat lift and close to Northwich town centre.

Many of the areas around Northwich are legacies of the old salt and soda ash industries, with disused lime beds and shallow pools created by subsidence. During the 1900s liquid, lime-rich waste was created by the local soda industry. Large areas of land were enclosed with ash clinker walls and filled with waste which gradually solidified.

Today the salt, lime, ash and clinker all create different conditions which allow some unusual plants to thrive in the Anderton Nature Park. Look out for spectacular displays of orchids in June and July.

Find out more about the rare and unusual plants on the waymarked wildflower trail around the park.

Anderton Nature Park is part of the Northwich Community Woodlands, a fabulous area of countryside stretching from Northwich town centre to Marbury Country Park. Over 11km ( 7miles) of surfaced routes enable walkers, cyclists and horse riders to explore the area.

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

Car park: Locked at 5.00pm in winter, 8.00pm in summer - charges apply.
