Salt works opens early for heritage event

A GLIMPSE into the hidden history of Cheshire will be offered during a series of events in September.

The Heritage Open Days programme runs from September 11 to 14 and offers free access to a wide range of attractive and historically important buildings and sites through west Cheshire.

It is an opportunity to discover hidden buildings as many of them are not open to the public except during the heritage weekend.

The Lion Salt Works, in Marston, is one of the sites that will open and give visitors a sneak peek before it re-opens fully as a heritage attraction in 2015.

A booklet highlighting all the buildings, walks and tours involved in the weekend is available online at

Advance booking is required for most of the guided tours and bookings can be made from August the 11.

This year’s programme has been produced by Cheshire West and Chester Council in partnership with Chester Civic Trust.
