The Saltscape Team

The natural and built environment of mid-Cheshire is shaped by salt. Salt marsh vegetation normally found on the coast thrives around natural brine springs while flashes created by subsidence (mine collapses) and lime-beds created by industrial waste are now unique wildlife habitats. Historic built structures, from the once thriving salt industry, are still visible and create a distinct post-industrial landscape unique in Britain.

Although many elements of the built and natural environment are protected some are at risk of being lost. Saltscape brings together a group of expert partners and the community to ensure that this special landscape is celebrated and managed cohesively to future generations.
