Nantwich, above the salt

Nantwich is a town whose prosperity was based on salt extraction and has thrived on this vital commodity since Roman times.  The buildings reflect the wealth of the old town.  Above is the Crown Hotel, a coaching inn on the Chester to London route.

 This fascinating building is a store - look at the roofline!
 St Mary's church, red sandstone construction dating from the 14th C and dominating the centre of the town

 And if the budget doesn't run to oak timber framed houses then employ a couple of local painters and your brick terrace can be transformed!
