LION SALT WORKS

Canal Boat - - Cruise Guide -

Opened in 1894, the Lion Salt Works, which stands by the canal near North­wich, was one of many such works in this part of Cheshire, op­er­at­ing for al­most a cen­tury un­til 1986. Fol­low­ing clo­sure, this last re­main­ing ‘open pan’ works has been pre­served as a mu­seum. It shows how the salt works op­er­ated and il­lus­trates the im­pact of salt on mid-Cheshire’s peo­ple, econ­omy and land­scape. The mu­seum is open Tues­days to Satur­days all year, and the site also in­cludes a Café, gift shop, but­ter­fly gar­den and play area.
