Local Area Guide from Reeds Rains Northwich, CheshireLocal Area Guide from Reeds Rains Northwich, Cheshire

Northwich is a town in Cheshire West and Chester. It lies in the heart of the Cheshire Plain, at the meeting of the rivers Weaver and Dane. According to the Sunday Times in 2014, Northwich has been named as one of the best places to live in the United Kingdom. Since the Roman times, the area around Northwich has been exploited for its salt pans. With recent investment in mine stabilisation, it is set to change the town with the 'Northwich Vision' being a plan for future development work.

The Cheshire property market is notorious for high demand and short supply, and properties in this particular district tend to be snatched up pretty quickly regardless of the market place. This is due to the prime situation of the town, close to the major motorway links of the M6, M56 and the highly regarded schooling. Northwich is one of the most sought after areas for professionals and families. With properties ranging from one bedroom apartments from £50,000, through to thatched cottages and stately homes there are options available for all walks of life.

Northwich has many industrial icons settling in the area such as John Brunner who founded ICI. This has boosted the local area over the years which have provided employment and economic growth to the area. Amy Heywood has lived in Northwich all her life and says: “Northwich has excellent road and railway  network systems for  commuting to Manchester, Chester, Liverpool and Warrington.  Excellent schools are in the local area and locally there are many places to escape the hustle and bustle of life.
