Memories of Nantwich
In the deep south of Cheshire lies Nantwich with its fine St Mary's Church, known as the cathedral. The abundance of half timbered buildings nearly all post-date 1583 when the town was raised by a great fire. The early part of the last millennium was turbulent due to its proximity to Wales and valuable salt supplies, which in even earlier times had been used to part pay the Roman soldiers along the road in Chester. Today it is a peaceful market town where you feel encouraged to walk and explore the two halves of the town separated by the River Weaver. The other waterway that influences the town is the nearby Shropshire Union Canal.
