Living Memories

Below is a series of audio recordings with residents from Northwich and its neighbouring towns and villages, sharing their memories of the town and how it has changed over the years. The recordings, conducted by Cheshire West and Chester Council staff as part of the Northwich Townscape Heritage project, form a vibrant collection of lived experiences reaching as far back as the 1940s. We would like to thank all involved for their time and willingness to share their unique stories and help us piece together Northwich’s history.
