World War 1 Exhibition

Lion Salt Works

2nd July 2016 - 18th November 2016
This is an old event, please click here to find more events

The exhibition is based on stories, documents, photos and objects shared by residents of Marston, Northwich and Cheshire at January’s World War I Roadshow.

It recreates the human story behind what life was like for local people at the battlefront and for those who remained behind.

‘From Salt to the Somme’ features a mock-up of a life-sized trench and various weapons and battle field finds from the Somme.

It will be open until November 18th and is subject to the Museum’s normal entry charges.*

The roadshow and exhibition were designed by Nigel Meyrick, North West winner of the Marsh Trust Volunteer Award, in conjunction with dedicated volunteers and staff.

‘From Salt to the Somme’ is as much an installation as an exhibition and features a mock-up of a trench with WW1 weapons including rifles, a Vickers machine gun, bayonets and various grenades and mortars.

The soldiers whose items were brought into the roadshow have been researched and their medals, photographs, diaries and trench art will be on display.

Please note the Museum is closed on Mondays except bank holiday Mondays.
