From Lostock Gralam station a short walk brings you to the Trent & Mersey canal.
A walk of just less than two miles takes you along the canal to the Lion Salt Works, which was re-opened on 5th June 2015 following a four-year, £10.23m restoration project.
This new ‘living museum’ gives a fascinating and fresh insight into the story of salt, explaining the national significance of Cheshire’s salt industry and how it shaped the local people, economy and landscape.
Adjacent to the Lion Salt Works is the Northwich Community Woodlands and a further 40 minutes walk is the Anderton Boat Lift.
For those seeking refreshments on the walk, the Salt Barge at Marston and the Stanley Arms opposite the Anderton Boat Lift both serve food.
Light refreshments are also available at the cafe at the Lion Salt Works.
Lostock Gralam station is within 500 metres of the Lostock Triangle Business Park, currently being developed.
A new commercial building and car park is planned for Lostock Gralam station.
Lostock Gralam Railway Station has won an award in the Cheshire Best Kept Station Competition.
In 2011, it won the Most Improved Station Award.
