It was a cold but dry wintery day when we set off for a walk around Marbury Country Park on the edge of Northwich in Cheshire. This is a fantastic area for a walk with so much variety there is no time to be bored. We started out walking through the woods along the shores of Budworth Mere, spotting the pretty village of Great Budworth across the water. We followed the canal for a short distance to the Lion Salt Works museum before walking back round Neumann’s Flash, stopping to look at the wildfowl and returning by the River Weaver and back to the canal and Big Wood. This is a walk we’ve done before but I never tire of it.
Walking around Neumann’s Flash on this grey day I found this memorial bench to David Vodros, a young man who is clearly much loved and missed.
