Delamere is a village and civil parish in Cheshire. It is situated approximately 7 miles to the west of Northwich, within the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester. The population of the civil parish taken at the 2011 census was 1,025.[1] The name of the village comes from the French de la mere "of the lake".

The civil parish is well known for the Delamere Forest, an expanse of oak, pine and sycamore trees which forms the largest woodland in Cheshire.[2] It includes the hills of Old Pale and Eddisbury Hill, part of the Mid Cheshire Ridge.

Delamere is served by Delamere railway station which opened on 22 June 1870. There are several cafés, including the Station House Café and Delamere Café in Delamere Forest. Other services include Delamere stores.
