Living and Working in Northwich

Northwich has established itself as a vibrant market town that is steeped in history. With the eye-catching architecture, prominent landmarks and rolling countryside the area has got something for everyone. It has a broad range of residential dwellings from the custom built houses occupied by the former ICI workers in Winnington to Victorian terraces towards the town center to the plush new builds in several locations.


Northwich history can be traced back to Roman times (known then as Condate) and sits at the confluence of the River Weaver and River Dane. Famed for its mining of salt the town is a thriving market town in the North West. To step back in time and explore the town’s rich history why not visit Weaver Hall Museum & Workhouse.

Northwich is renowned for attracting high profile employers to the area due to the local graduate talent pool. Most notably at Gadbrook Park, which employs over 4000 people, you have the likes of Barclays, Morrisons, The Hut Group and Roberts Bakery to name a few.

The regeneration of Barons Quay in the heart of the town has transformed the landscape of Northwich dramatically. With big stores taking up residency in the shopping centre it has increased the footfall in and around the town markedly. Please visit Barons Quay website to keep up-to-date with the latest news:

Northwich offers a great variety of shopping choices from the larger chain stores such as River Island, H&M and Sports Direct to the more characteristic small independent retailers who offer more niche goods and services, giving us a great reason to shop local.
