Comber Mere Walks
Comber Mere Abbey is surrounded by some beautiful parkland, woodland, lakes and gardens. The historic abbey was founded in the 1130s by Hugh Malbank, Baron of Nantwich. The expansive estate includes a 5 acre walled garden and a number of Grade II listed structures including a sandstone sundial which is thought to date from the 12th century.
The site is now open to the public on certain days of the year including the spring months when there is a bluebell walk. You will have to book a place though using the more information link below.
