Tucked away amongst the rolling hills of the Cheshire/Shropshire border, Marbury is a wonderful example of an unspoilt, tranquil English village.

Starting near the Swan Inn, a traditional local pub, the walk passes the still waters of one of the village's two meres (or lakes). It then climbs gently to the top of Wirswall Hill, well known for its panoramic views across the whole of the county. The tower of Marbury's fine 15th century church, rising above the surrounding countryside, guides walkers back down the hill towards the village.

After again passing the wildlife rich mere, the route returns to Marbury - with its half-timbered houses, inviting pub and village green which boasts a magnificent oak tree planted in 1814.
