Tonight we walk around the Mere at Astbury Country Park, it is located near to the centre of Congleton in Cheshire and is signposted off the main A34 road. The weather is dry and bright, with long sunny spells. Car parking is free of charge at the Visitor Centre.
|Astbury Mere is a former sand quarry now run by a charity, the Astbury Mere Trust.|
|There are many things to do at the Mere, including a diving/sailing club, walking and fishing as well as the Visitors Centre, Playground and a Cafe.|
|You can take watersports lessons at the club, as in the centre photograph, windsurfing.|
|A wide variety of wild flowers can be found in the area as well as waterfowl, such as coots, moorhen, swans and grebes. The circular walk finishes as it started back at the Visitors Centre, as the photo on the right.|
