Anderton Nature Park, Northwich

Anderton Nature Park was one of the first areas of the Northwich Woodlands to be reclaimed. It is now a haven for wildlife and in particular a favourite haunt for both keen and amateur botanists where a Wild Flower Trail can be discovered by those wanting to explore. Children and adults alike can also have fun seeking out the many art projects based around the site.


The park is adjacent to the Anderton Boat Lift. Built in 1875 and restored to full working order in 2002, the lift and visitor centre provides a unique experience. Contact the British Waterways Operations Centre for seasonal opening times on 01606 786777.
