See ‘behind the scenes’ at Northwich Memorial Court site

Residents are being invited to take a peek ‘behind the scenes’ at construction on Northwich’s new entertainment and leisure venue – all from the comfort of their armchair.

A webcam has been set up overlooking the Memorial Court site so that people can go online to see what is happening behind the construction hoardings.


The camera, set up by contractor Wates Construction, offers two views – a live image and a time lapse video showing the progress to date.

It can be accessed via a link on the Weaver Valley website

Councillor Stuart Parker, Executive Member for Culture and Economy, said: “The work on Memorial Court is really coming on apace.

“The excavation to the swimming pools has begun, the foundation works are underway and the erection of the steel frame is due to start this month.

“Thanks to the webcam, residents can now watch all this happening from a unique aerial perspective.” 

Local Councillor Amy Mercer-Bailey said: “Now the hoardings are up people can’t see what is happening on site, so the webcam is a great way to keep an eye on progress. 

“I’m sure it will prove fascinating to watch over the coming months as the building starts to take shape.”
