I understand from one of my regular readers that I may not be alone in my interest of industrial history. This came as something of a shock as I rather felt I was communing with myself on this blog.
If you are interested in the salt industry around Northwich there is a very interesting booklet written by Colin Edmondson - A Pocket History of the River Weaver. It is all composed from original sources unlike many of the derivative offerings in the bookshops: it is only some 36 pages but is more informative than books many times its size. Colin lives on a narrowboat in Cheshire and can be contacted at:
Ask him about the other books he has written, and mention where you found his name.
