Northwich is a charming and attractive market town located in the middle of the Cheshire Plain and at the junction of the rivers Dane & Weaver. The town was at the forefront of the salt producing industry as the district was resting above large salt beds. Did you know that salt has been produced here since Roman Times and during the 19th Century the industry was at its peak?
Although, salt production was good for the town, there used to be a problem with subsidence. As so much salt was being removed from the ground, buildings were literally sinking to the point where the whole town had sunk to the ground. Thanks to a huge investment into mine stabilisation this is no longer a problem nowadays.
There are so many beautiful areas of Northwich to visit on touring holidays and they include: the canal, the woodland parks and the historic black & white buildings in the Town Centre.
