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, https://lionsaltworks.westcheshiremuseums.co.uk/, 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.
