Delamere Park is one of Cheshire’s most exclusive and sought-after housing developments and is built on the Wilbraham estate established in 1784 when the wealthy and powerful Wilbrahams moved the family seat from Nantwich to Cuddington and built one of the largest houses in the district, Delamere Lodge which survived until just before the Second World War when the last George Wilbraham built Delamere Manor a property nearby which until recently was occupied by the famous pop musician, Gary Barlow.

After the war the former army huts were used to house local people on the Northwich Rural District Council’s housing list including many people who were relatives of serving Polish soldiers.
