Drawn from the River Weaver Exhibition
Lion Salt Works
Tuesday 18th May 2021 - Monday 5th July 2021

A posthumous exhibition by talented artist, Pauline Leaver from Wistaston near Nantwich, is opening at the Lion Salt Works Museum on 18 May until 5 July. Inspired by the River Weaver, the photography exhibition was organised as a tribute to her by her long-term friends and fellow artists, Celia Rowlands and Pamela Field with whom they had been collaborating on an on-going project ‘Drawn from the River Weaver’.

All the photographs at the exhibition will be available for purchase with the proceeds being generously donated to the Museum by Pauline Leaver’s estate. Normal admission charges apply and due to social distancing requirements, booking in advance is required.

For more information, call the Museum on 01606 275066 or visit 

Pauline Leaver was a successful former surgeon, in retirement taking an Art Foundation course at Northwich College of Art before gaining a Fine Art Degree at Camberwell in London.

She used many different forms of artistic expression but while working on the Weaver project she settled on photography, enhancing the images digitally to capture the atmosphere of a place.

This exhibition features the photos she took of the River Weaver where she was inspired by the patterns and reflections in the flow of the water, in particular around locks, weirs, sluices and bridges, many of which she reworked on the computer to produce striking and evocative images.

To ensure the safety of staff and visitors, the Lion Salt Works Museums has introduced revised opening times and pre-booking. To guarantee admission, places must be booked in advance. 

To pre-book a visit, contact the Museum on 01606 275066. Opening times and booking procedures may change at short notice, please check the website (  before planning a visit.
