Saltscape Trail

Explore Saltscape, the unique salt-shaped landscape in mid-Cheshire along the River Weaver

The Saltscape Trail  takes you through six miles of beautiful scenery passing attractions such as the Anderton Boat Lift, the award-winning Lion Salt Works, the River Weaver and Trent & Mersey Canal and of course, Northwich Woodlands. 


The trail was developed and managed by the Friends of Anderton and Marbury (FoAM), as part of the Saltscape initiative.
