New homes in Nantwich

 

Welcome to Nantwich

Located in Cheshire just a five-minute train journey from Crewe, Nantwich is a popular commuter town and a charming place to live. From historic buildings to independent shops, local museums and a regular market, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy close to your new home in Nantwich.

A quick history

Nantwich dates back to Roman times when salt was taken from the town to its larger neighbour, Chester. Records in the Domesday Book show Nantwich had eight salt houses in the late 11th century, and its importance within the salt industry grew during the Middle Ages. Although much of the town was destroyed by a fire in the 16th century, it was rebuilt using wood from nearby Delamere Forest.

In 1644 the Battle of Nantwich saw a clash between Parliamentarians and Royalists, and later by the 18th century the town’s salt industry had declined. The Brine Baths were still in use, and an open air-brine pool is used to this day.

Business and industry

Although industry in Nantwich historically centres on salt and tanneries, today Nantwich is mainly a commuter town. Neighbouring Crewe is home to a number of major employers including car manufacturers Bentley, whose production facilities are located in the town. The engineering facility Crewe Works, Radius Payment Solutions and Bargain Booze are also headquartered in Crewe, while BAE Systems are based nearby at Radway Green.

Things to do in the area

Nantwich has a charming town centre, with lots of independent shops, locally-owned cafes and the historic town market. Nantwich Museum tells the story of the town’s salt-making past starting in Roman times, while Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker, created for the RAF during the Second World War, is a truly unique attraction and well worth a visit. 

For a stroll in the great outdoors, Cholmondeley Castle Gardens are perfect for a relaxing afternoon walk, while the Peak District National Park is only a short drive away.

For sports fans, Crewe and Nantwich Steamers play rugby league at Barony Park, while Queens Park Golf Course and Brookfield Golf Club are ideal for a leisurely Sunday morning round.

Other attractions in the town include Reaseheath Zoo and Nantwich Lake, while neighbouring Crewe is home to Crewe Lyceum Theatre, Crewe Heritage Centre and The Alexandra Stadium. 

Travel and commuting

Nantwich has good transport links by road and rail, ideal if you’re commuting daily by train, or via the M6 motorway which is close to the town. Crewe is just 10 minutes away by train or 15 minutes by car, while Stoke on Trent can be reached in 25 minutes by car, Wrexham in 40 minutes and Chester in 45 minutes.

If you’re travelling to and from Manchester, the journey by car takes one hour 10 minutes via the A530, while the train takes around 55 minutes from Nantwich to Piccadilly. For journeys into London, you can reach the capital in one hour 55 minutes by train, changing once in Crewe.

When it’s time for a well-earned holiday, Manchester Airport is only a 50-minute drive away.
