The camping area is spacious and sheltered by an array of mature trees. The field itself was once the grounds of the long since disintegrated Marbury Hall. All that remains of this stately giant are some steps and uniquely and very well-maintained lido swimming pool. Ranger Dave and the FOAM (Friends of Anderton & Marbury) Team have developed the area for leisure, and it features some great new additions including hard standing for scamper vans and livins.
