Title of Talk: THE LION SALTWORKS
By Peter Solan
The Lion Saltworks is the last remaining open pan salt works in Marston, nr Northwich. The works closed in 1986 and is now preserved as a museum. Following a £10.23 million project, opened in June 2015, the museum now offers a fascinating journey through the life of the country’s last open-pan salt making site. Peter will take us through the history of the saltworks, once a common sight in mid-Cheshire, and the development of the museum.
