The Lion Salt Works is an historic open-pan salt-making site that has been restored and transformed into a unique heritage attraction. Located in the village of Marston, close to the town of Northwich, the site lies adjacent to the Trent and Mersey Canal and is close to the historic Anderton Boat Lift. A substantial part of the site has been granted Scheduled Ancient Monument status.
Led by Cheshire West and Chester Council, this £10.23million project has seen the site reborn as a fascinating destination for tourists, day visitors and families and a valued resource for local communities, businesses and heritage interest groups.
Restoration work is now complete and the attraction will be fully open to the public from Friday 5th June, 2015.
