Lion Salt Works - Evaporation Room

The Lion Salt Works Museum has won the National Lottery Award's 'Heritage Project 2016'. Almost 6,000 people voted for Lion Salt Works in this year's National Lottery Awards — the annual search to find the UK's favourite Lottery funded projects.

Katherine West, Cheshire West and Chester Museum and Arts Manager said

"the incredible standard of the short listed projects makes this even more of an achievement! We want to say thank people for their amazing support in helping us win this. Thanks to hard work and energy in promoting the VOTE LSW campaign, we had everyone talking about the Lion Salt Works. Regional and local businesses, local MPs, sports clubs, heritage groups, arts organisations and libraries as well as many other groups connected to Lion Salt Works, such as geology, canal and railway enthusiasts have all given us their unwavering support. By using your contacts and networks, promoting us on websites, through social media and at events you helped us get the message out so thank you."

As the winners, the National Lottery are helping to publicise the win and LSW have already enjoyed coverage on Granada, BBC North West, Northwich Guardian, Chester Chronicle and local radio. The BBC have also filmed at the site and this will be shown on BBC 1 in September.
