Delamere Forest or Delamere Forest Park is a large wood near the town of Frodsham in Cheshire, England. The woodland, which is managed by the Forestry Commission, covers an area of 972ha making it the largest area of woodland in the county.
It contains a mixture of deciduous and evergreen trees.Delamere, which means "forest of the lakes", is all that remains of the great Forests of Mara and Mondrem which covered over 60sqmi of this part of Cheshire. Established in the late 11th century,
they were the hunting forests of the Norman Earls of Chester. Order was maintained under forest law. However this governance limited the agricultural potential of the area for centuries. It was not until ownership passed to The Crown in 1812
that the ancient ordnances were abolished. In 1924 the woodland came under the control of the Forestry Commission.The area also includes Old Pale hill, the high point of the northern mass of the Mid Cheshire Ridge, and Blakemere Moss, a lake around in length.

quaking bog or schwingmoor, has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and forms part of an international Ramsar site; Linmer Moss has also been designated an SSSI for its fenland habitat.
