Preston Salt Pans 2024

Although it is now over 150 years since the fires went out on Sir Robert Preston's salt pans, the old works are still well preserved and well worth a visit. In Scotland, salt making and coal mining went hand in hand as you needed at least six tons of coal to produce just one ton of salt – hence the reason, in times past, salt was so expensive.
