Northwich Library Celebrates Heritage Open Day

Visitors to Northwich Heritage Open Day will get the chance to have a free guided tour of the Northwich’s beautiful library.

The iconic building on Witton Street is a Grade II listed building.  It was donated  to the town by Sir John Brunner, former MP for Northwich in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and the current building dates back to 1909.

The building once housed the town’s salt museum and cared for the important collection which explained the rise of the salt industry. Inside will be a special display of original photographs and books on the salt heritage of the town, which you can browse for free – or even borrow if you are library member! You can even test your Northwich knowledge with our local history photo quiz and your little ones can take part in a children’s treasure hunt around the library, looking for our local heritage sites.

Open 9am-1pm, drop in no need to book.

Tours depart from the entrance at 10am, 11am and 12pm. Tours are free; simply pop into the library on the day 10 minutes before the tour and ask to join in!
