The county of Cheshire is easily among the most picturesque and beautiful places in all of England and every town within it is imbued with the lovely atmosphere that can only be described as decidedly Cheshirian. At nearly every corner one can find examples of visceral beauty of both the man made and natural varieties. It is in this stunning slice of earth that we find the charming town of Nantwich.

The population of Nantwich is a healthy twelve thousand. This allows it to have just enough people to keep it from being dull or a "one horse town" and, to be sure, Nantwich is definitely filled with current diversions that are right on the pulse of the nation's entertainment seekers. Also, the population is just low enough to keep Nantwich from becoming crowded or overly dirty. The town has managed to maintain much of its original beauty and charm by not being forced to create more infrastructure and houses. The scenery looks every bit as decadent as it must have always looked and every sunrise and sunset is a special treat to the residents of Nantwich.

Few people are aware, however, that Nantwich is no flash in the pan city that was created in recent years but instead an old town with an incredibly rich and varied history. Nantwich is first mentioned in the last days of the dying throes of the Roman Empire. In those days Nantwich was filled to the brim with natural salt and anybody who knows a thing or two about preservation in the days before refrigeration knows that salt was arguably more valuable than gold at that time. The Roman soldiers would come to Nantwich and mine the precious salt and use it to keep foodstuffs fresh for the forces during their conquests. Even to this day the cheese made in Cheshire is often salted with Nantwich salt and, though the amount of salt in Nantwich is far less than what it used to be, one can still find some downright fantastic and delicious salt in the town.

Though Nantwich is very old, most of the buildings and monuments that have stood in the town over the years are sadly no longer with us. This is because of the various tragedies that have befallen Nantwich over its long history. During the days of the Norman Empire Nantwich was burned down to the ground and only one building was left standing. A couple hundred years later Nantwich was again attacked but this time it wasn't the Normans but the Welsh who razed the town to the ground. Even as recently as the middle 1800s Nantwich was burned down once again. Despite such terrible problems, the fact remains that Nantwich is still a lovely and gorgeous city. This is truly admirable and the valiant citizens of Nantwich should be commended for being so brave in the face of so many tragedies. Nantwich may not have very many old buildings but one thing the town does have is an incredible amount of pluck and bravery.
