Alongside Forestry England, we are creating a new wooden-framed visitor welcome hub at Delamere Forest in Cheshire, one of the most popular forests in England which each year welcomes over 750,000 visitors to run, walk, bike, horse ride, listen to live music or take part in a sports event.

The project will improve the visitor experience with a new café featuring upgraded facilities including more indoor and outdoor seating, along with key accessibility improvements and a new car park with extra capacity and enhanced vehicle access to cater for busy days and popular events, like Forest Live concerts.

Delamere will remain open to visitors during the construction of the visitors’ hub due for completion by summer next year 2021.
