MURGATROYD'S BRINE PUMPS - The last of their kind

Phase 1 of the project to save Murgatroyd's Brine Pumps is now complete after seven years of work by the Town's Heritage Officer and George Twigg, formerly Chief Chemist at Murgatroyd's - thanks to Historic England with contributions from Cheshire East Council and Middlewich Town Council. Hopefully, phase 2 (work on the shaft and minor repairs) will follow in the coming year. We are not quite at the stage of getting volunteers working on site but we will be opening the site for visitors later this year

If there are any of you out there who are interested in volunteering your time in the coming year we'd love to hear from you
