Great Budworth and Budworth Mere

Great Budworth

Great Budworth is located 7 miles west of Knutsford and 4 miles north of Northwich.

With a population of just above 300, this village offers spectacular views because its red-brick houses belong to the 17th century.

Some of the buildings date back to even the 14th century. White and black timber made houses are another attraction here.

The name Budworth is derived from two words of the Old Saxon (Old low Grammer) – bude means dwelling and wurth, which stands for a place by the water. Until 1948, this place was a part of the Arley Hall estate.

It’s famous for birdwatching and water sports. You can enjoy fishing at north-west and south-east banks. Available stock includes roach, perch, eels, tench, bream, hybrids and some large pikes.

Multiple angling clubs own the fishing rights. Night fishing is also allowed, but for seniors with Night Fishing Permit.
