Walk parts of the Saltscape Trail to search for clues and surprises hidden in this unique landscape.

One of the highlights of Northwich’s calendar is its Easter Extravaganza and this year’s event, on Saturday 15 April, will be its best ever. Northwich Town Centre (between 11am and 2pm) will continue to host its hugely popular town-based Easter Trail, family activity and Easter Egg Hunt competition but this year will also feature a second free Easter trail between the iconic Anderton Boat Lift, the award-winning Lion Salt Works Museum and Northwich Woodlands

The Northwich Woodlands that links the Lion Salt Works Museum to the Anderton Boat Lift by towpath but also by a two sign-posted footpaths – the Dragonfly and Orchid Walk - that take visitors through the unique ‘Saltscape’ environment. During Easter, the woodland features bluebells and interesting wildlife and this will be the subject of its children’s activities.

The Anderton Boat Lift, located two miles from the Lion Salt Works Museum is one of the most spectacular examples of high Victorian engineering on the British waterways.  Known as the ‘Cathedral of the Canals’. Its huge structure is the world’s first successful boat lift and still in operation today.  Its tree-top Coffee Shop is well known for its fresh, affordable food and it features a well-stocked shop and play area.
