A market town where water and wildlife are never too far away.

A few years back a study by Royal Mail revealed that Middlewich was one of the top five desirable postcodes in England. It is a place people want to live in and a an increasingly popular destination for photographers.

This market town is steeped in history, from its founding by the Romans to the industrial revolution. Of course a lot of this is linked to the production of salt throughout the ages.

There are many pretty places to take photos and you are spoilt for choice when it comes to waterways, there are three rivers: the Dane, Croco and Wheelock and three canals that run through here, the Shropshire Union Canal, the Trent and the Mersey Canal, and the Wardle Canal.

Other points of interest include the Anglican parish church of St Michael and All Angels and The Kings Lock Inn located alongside the Trent and Mersey Canal.

Why don’t you upload your images of Middlewich to the reader photo gallery?
