Salt Line Alsager
Salt Line Alsager
The Salt Line is now a linear nature trail and cycleway starting near to the Wilbraham Arms in Alsager.

It follows the old mineral line from the Potteries through to Sandbach and the salt towns of S Cheshire.

Coal and limestone was carried into Cheshire where brine was heated in large open pans to leave white salt crystals which were then used in the making of washing soda, glass, soap and detergents.

The Salt Line is now in the ownership of Congleton Borough Council.
