LION SALT WORKS MUSEUM CALLS ON UK GEOLOGISTS TO BACK THE MUSEUM’S BID TO BECOME THE UK’S FAVOURITE LOTTERY-FUNDED HERITAGE PROJECTToday, the Lion Salt Works Museum is appealing to geologists from across the UK to support its bid to become one of the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects. Restored in 2015, thanks to a £5m award from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Museum located in Cheshire, is the only salt museum in the country. With six awards to its name in the last year, the Museum has today (22 June) beaten stiff competition to be shortlisted for the hotly-contested Heritage project of the National Lottery Awards 2016. The Museum must now win a nationwide public vote against six other projects. ….and the outcome. The award winning Museum received almost 6000 votes to be named the UK’s Best Heritage project in this year’s awards.
