The Lion Salt Works is a restored historic open-pan salt making site, in the village of Marston, close to Northwich. The site lies adjacent to the Trent and Mersey Canal, close to Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse, and the historic Anderton Boat Lift.

This £10.23 million project opened in June 2015 offering a fascinating journey through the life of the country's last open-pan salt making site.

When exploring the site and its restored buildings, you will discover how the salt works operated and the impact of salt on mid-Cheshire's people, economy and landscape. A visit will also set the scene for a wider exploration of the footpaths, waterways and attractions of the adjacent Northwich Woodlands (a 350 hectare area of vibrant and accessible parkland) and the wider Weaver Valley including the Anderton Boat Lift.
