Salt Making at the Lion Salt Works: Fundraising Call

The Lion Salt Works Trust is seeking to raise £21,000 to help towards the long-term ambition of making salt again in the traditional manner. This includes the restoration of buildings at Lion Salt Works to allow the permanent on-site demonstration of the open salt making method that will help to preserve the traditional techniques of salt making.

The site is run by Cheshire West Museums,, and this is the second phase of a project that will involve funding for equipment to enable demonstrations of open pan salt making to take place at a larger scale. It will also fund research into traditional techniques to be carried out on-site in permanent larger pans and other salt making equipment.
