We stayed for a long weekend. Seyella was not far away so we spent some time with Geof and Margaret exploring the surrounding countryside.
There are many paths through the Silver Birch woods and down along the river Weaver.
We were almost encouraged to take the boat down on the lift but decided it could wait till later. Salt is an abundant raw material round here first discovered by the Romans. At one time much of the salt was transported up and down the river Weaver and up on to the Trent and Mersey canal. Salt is a molecule made from the two elements sodium and chloride. A few factories are busy processing the stuff here.
