Llangollen Railway with the Lion Salt Works Museum

The Lion Salt Works Museum in Northwich contracted Llangollen Railway’s Carriage and Wagon works to renovate their Salt Wagon.
It is now complete and has been delivered to Northwich this week to go on permanent display near the entrance.
The Cheshire Museum is also appealing for votes as it strives to become one of the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects.
The Museum beat off stiff competition from over 600 organisations to get short-listed for the best Heritage project of the National Lottery Awards. It is the only contender for this award in the North-West.
It must now win a public vote before it can get national recognition for the Museum by winning the top award at a televised presentation on BBC One.
To vote for the Lion Salt Works, go to www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk/awards or call 0844 836 9674. Voting runs from 9am on 22 June to midnight on 20 July.
The Lion Salt Works is competing against six other projects to be crowned winner of the prestigious Heritage Award. As well as generating national recognition for its meticulous four-year £10m restoration of the Museum, the award also recognises the contribution of its fun, interactive and educational displays and its innovation programme of events. The Museum was restored and is run by Cheshire West and Chester Council.
