New homes in Northwich

 

Welcome to Northwich

Located in Cheshire and just a short drive away rel="noopener noreferrer" from Chester and Crewe, Northwich is a popular commuter town with a number of big employers in the local area. If you want to live in a rural yet historic town with plenty for the whole family to see and do, a new home in Northwich could be the right choice for you.

A quick history

Northwich began life as a Roman settlement when it was an important river crossing and salt town. Salt production continued throughout the Norman times and Middle Ages, and rock salt was discovered in the 1670s. After a cost-cutting technique was developed by using water to extract the salt as brine, many of the mines collapsed. In Victorian times, Northwich became popular for its brine baths.

Today, Northwich is a popular commuter town with an influx of investment bringing lots of modern facilities to the local area.

Business and industry

Although Northwich has grown around the salt industry, today the town is home to a diverse set of employers including engineering firm Cygnet Group, educational travel company Holidaybreak, Roberts Bakery and The Little Treats Co. Rudheath is home to a major Morrisons distribution centre, and Bentley has a big production plant nearby in Crewe.

Things to do in the area

If you move to Northwich, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to days out in the local area. Stockley Farm Birds of Prey Centre is a popular place to see these impressive animals up-close, while Lion Salt Works is an informative museum exploring the town’s history.

If you’re a keen golfer, you can enjoy a leisurely round at Hartford Golf Club, or travel slightly further to visit Heyrose Golf Club. For family-friendly trips, Chester Zoo is popular with adults and children alike, while Blue Planet Aquarium is an educational and entertaining day out, and has Europe’s largest collection of sharks.

Other attractions in and near the town include Delamere Forest, Marbury Country Park, Vale Royal Falconry Centre and Arley Hall and Gardens. For a day of retail therapy, a visit to the Trafford Centre in Manchester or Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet in Chester are a must.
