An exciting day using two great Victorian sites in Northwich.

In Victorian Northwich, the salt industry meant work for some and riches for others, but on the edge of town the workhouse awaited the unwary and the unfortunate. Discover the tough life of a salt worker at the Lion Salt Works and the dreadful fate of a pauper in the Northwich union Workhouse. Work or the workhouse?
