Lion Salt Works

These works were the last open-pan salt works operating in this country up until 1986, when the collapse of overseas markets forced the company to close. Now a registered Trust, and operated by Cheshire West & Chester Council, the site is being painstakingly restored and is expected to open in Summer 2014.

The site will hold a museum and visitors will discover how the salt works operated and the impact of salt on mid Cheshire’s people, economy and landscape.
