Welcome to
Marbury Park
Swimming Club

There has been an open air pool nestling within the grounds of Marbury Country Park near Northwich in Cheshire since the 1930s. Originally built for the members of Marbury Hall Country Club, the pool was owned for many years by ICI for the use of their employees. Since the early 1970s, the pool has been operated by Marbury Park Swimming Club, a volunteer-run members’ club whose aim is to keep this wonderful leisure facility and piece of local history open for the local community (and those from further afield) to enjoy!

The pool is set in lawned gardens and is surrounded by woodlands which both screen and shelter the pool and its users. The pool is unheated and features two diving boards – one is a springboard and the other is a platform board. There is also a children’s paddling pool and a small play area. There are picnic tables around the grounds and drinks and snacks can be bought at the small shop at the gate.

THE LOCAL AREA – Marbury Country Park offers many miles of walks, cycle trails and bridal paths. Many are accessible by pram and wheelchair. There is also an extensive play area for children and you can feed the ducks on Marbury Mere. Also nearby is the Anderton Boat Lift which has a tea room, and Tatton Park, owned by the National Trust, is within easy driving distance.
