Nantwich Illuminated @ Nantwich Museum
19th Jul 2023 - 30th Sep 2023
UNTIL Saturday 30th September
The exhibition traces the history of the former Nantwich Gas Works site (off Welsh Row), which supplied the town's gas for over a hundred years before closing in 1966. The making and use of gas and its impact on the town's residents is explored observing how it was initially used to power lights before cookers, heaters and other appliances.
The exhibition features items loaned from the National Gas Museum in Leicester along with documents that tell the story of the site from Roman times and a glimpse of what the future holds.
It is a fascinating look at a significant part of Nantwich's history, and runs until 30 September.
