Northwich is a town in the county of Cheshire, in North East England. It was once a major hub for salt mining but poor mining techniques led to land-collapses in the area, which put a stop to the process and led to stabilisation and residential development in the region. In 2007, four major mines were stabilised and modernisation of old buildings started in earnest. The town today is known for major landmarks including Weaver Hall Museum while Marbury Country Park is a popular green area in the town.
There are a number of serviced offices and retail spaces that are occupied by the likes of financial companies, insurance agencies, mortgage brokers, graphic design firms and interior decoration firms. You will also find business and management consultants in the area along with lawyers, engineering firms, car-hire companies, secretarial services, and healthcare practitioners. Ireland Electrical and CRS Consultants Ltd. have their head offices in Northwich, as does Cheshire Cosmetic Ltd.
