Astbury Mere Country Park occupies the site of a former sand quarry, just off Newcastle Road in Congleton, Cheshire. The site encompasses 14ha of open space, just ten minutes walk from the town centre, with paths linking into the local countryside. It is right on the edge of the Peak District National Park.
Astbury Mere Country Park provides a number of different habitats for wildlife, such as woodland and areas of shrubs which are ideal for birds and small mammals. In addition to the many species of water birds on the mere, you can expect to find frogs, toads, and the smooth newt.
