6th August 2017 - 10th September 2017

The Exhibition 

Between August 8th and September 10th, the Lion Salt Works Museum will host an exhibition of 13 colourful railway posters promoting the Mid Cheshire Railway Line.

Produced by the Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership and designed by artist Nicky Thompson of Chester-based Lemondrop Creative, the posters are intended to evoke the Golden Age of British travel and encourage holiday-makers in the North West and beyond to embrace the spirit of adventure and explore the sites of the region by rail.

Places featured on the posters include Manchester, Stockport, Altrincham, Hale, Knutsford, Lostock Gralam, Northwich, Delamere and Chester.

There is no charge to view the exhibition and regular tours will take place at 11am and 3pm when the Museum is open.

You may also view the Exhibition outside these times by paying the normal Museum admission charge.

Note this exhibition was planned to close on September 3rd but because of its success has been extended to Sunday September 10th.

Note the Museum is closed on a Monday.
