Winsford is a town and civil parish within the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, lies on the River Weaver south of Northwich and west of Middlewich, and grew around the salt mining industry after the river was canalised in the 18th century, allowing freight to be conveyed northwards to the Port of Runcorn on the River Mersey.

      The crossing over the Weaver is the likely reason that a hamlet was established in the area, although the growth of the Saxon manor owes much to its ownership by the Edwin, Earl of Mercia and its proximity to Delamere Forest. The evidence for Weaverham before the eleventh century comes from the Domesday Book . – River Weaver navigation – key in transport of salt from Cheshire; – St Georges Church built on castle site demolished ; – Salthouse Dock started but not completed until ; – Canning Dock (original Pool mouth’)- formed from the entrance to the Old Dock. It was mainly a graving dock, repairing damaged ships.

      Any one who passed through a New England village on a week day a century ago, or rode up to the door of a Pennsylvania or Virginia house, would probably be greeted with a heavy thwack-thwack from within doors, a regular sound which would readily be recognized by every one at that time as proceeding from weaving on a hand-loom.

The hesitant reader should not be deterred by the specialist character of this book.

In & attempts were made to pass bills through Parliament to improve the navigation of the River Weaver. Both bills failed but little is known about the detail.

Perhaps surprisingly the bill was opposed by the Corporation of Liverpool who employed Captain John Case to defend against. History. The Weaver runs through the Cheshire salt-producing area, but was not deep enough to allow boats to reach the salt mines.

It was tidal for around 7 miles (11 km) to Pickering's wharf, [3] and salt from the mines was carried by pack horse to the wharf, where it was loaded into barges.

These used the ebbing tide to carry them back down the river. [1]. The River Weaver Navigation is twenty miles of interesting waterway passing through attractive countryside, close to the towns of Winsford and Frodsham and right through Northwich Town centre.
