The Museum has recently been assisting Boundless Productions with information about the Nantwich brine baths and, in particular the Brine Baths Hotel in preparation for a new television series of Great Railway Journeys. This culminated in an interview with Michael Portillo involving our Volunteer Webmaster Bill Pearson.
The hotel opened in 1893. Visitors were encouraged to arrive by train and a cart was available to transfer their luggage to the hotel. Despite being a major social centre it was never a commercial success and eventually closed in 1947. Today, only the Bowling Green survives as a testament to what was once a grand estate.
