Lion Salt Works, Cheshire
Open June 2015
RFA was appointed to drive the interpretive design of the project, first featured on the BBC’s Restoration programme in 2004 and subsequently awarded Heritage Lottery funding in 2008 to restore the site and provide visitor facilities.
With several grade II listed buildings on the site, the majority of which is a scheduled ancient monument and also a conservation area, this last vestige of the salt making industry in the Northwich area is set to become an important new visitor attraction. Careful integration of displays into – and around – the restored buildings and site will provide an engaging experience for visitors.
– Winner of the AABC Civic Trust Award for Conservation, 2016
– Winner of the Museums & Heritage Award for Excellence (restoration/conservation), 2016
