Register at The Swan, Marbury 
A walk across undulating countryside leaving from the Swan at Marbury (please car park at the back of the car park). The walk goes up the road out of Marbury and then crosses the fields to the Combermere Woods, where there is likely to be wild garlic with the odd bluebell still remaining. The bird song in the woods at this time of year can be lovely with the sound of Greater Spotted Woodpeckers being fairly common. From here, we head across the fields and up to Lodge Farm on Black park Road. We then walk down the long side of Oss Mere, to follow the fields and road back to Marbury.

This makes a varied walk of Woods, Lakes and Landscapes. Bring boots as it is likely to be slightly wet even at this time of year.
