Northwich is a town and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It lies in the heart of the Cheshire Plain, at the confluence of the rivers Weaver and Dane. The town is about 18 miles (29 km) east of Chester and 15 miles (24 km) south of Warrington.The area around Northwich has been exploited for its salt pans since Roman times, when the settlement was known as Condate. The town has been severely affected by salt mining with subsidence historically being a large issue. However, recent investment in mine stabilisation is set to change the town with the ‘Northwich Vision’ being a plan for future development work.

During Roman times Northwich was known as Condate, meaning “the confluence”, probably due to its location at the meeting point of the rivers Dane and Weaver and the existence of Northwich in the early medieval period is shown by its record in the Domesday Book.
