Local Interest

All roads lead to Rome

The Weaver Hall Museum and Work House in Northwich Cheshire, records the social, cultural and industrial history of West Cheshire. It was formerly known as the Salt Museum, reflecting its early focus on the history of Salt extraction, a local industry dating back to Roman times. The Museum was renamed Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse in 2010 as its remit now extends to cover the broader history of the area and also the history of the building itself as a former workhouse. Built in 1839 and is a Grade 2 listed building.
