This History of Marbury Hall and Parkland has been compiled by FoAM members Frances Findlay and Alan Redley. It arose from research carried out to update and replace an Interpretation Panel about the Hall. Far more information was collected than could be used on the panel and the research has since been extended. Marbury Hall was demolished at the end of 1968 and information about the history of the Hall and surrounding Parkland is frequently requested by visitors, so FoAM decided to make much more of the collected research material accessible here.
The research has been carried out by Frances Findlay, Chris Moseley, Nathan Rathbone and Alan Redley, with help from local historian Geoff Buchan (who kindly agreed to us using material from his book ‘BELMONT The House That Jack Built, 1996)’. FoAM member Clive Brookes is researching Marbury during the Second World War and some of his research has been included in Section 5, Second World War Years. Also, letters and articles in the Northwich Guardian have resulted in new information coming to light from its readers.
Thank you to all those who have supplied information or helped in other ways.
Frances Findlay and Alan Redley.
The research material has been organised into sections:
(Section 5 updated June 2014)
