Light pollution maps show Delamere Forest Park located in a pocket of darker skies in between Chester and Northwich and thus offers a respite from the city lights and a fantastic stargazing location. The surrounding forest helps to block out light pollution on the horizons leaving amazing views of the skies above. Members of the Mid-Cheshire Astronomical Group hold monthly meetings here in the Forest Explorers classroom.
