Nantwich Museum Trust Ltd

The museum is lucky to have a lot of detailed artefacts and records that tell us more about the history of Nantwich.

The Collection comprises scenes of Nantwich life in past centuries by the Nantwich artist, Herbert St John Jones; two paintings by unknown artists of two notable local figures; an eighteenth-century painting of a racehorse on Nantwich racecourse and a twentieth-century painting by a local artist of the town's square. There is an artist’s impression of the sixteenth-century fire of Nantwich and buildings and people in Hospital Street and by the Crown hotel. The two local figures are the town’s first historian and a member of a prominent business family. The racecourse featured in the racehorse painting no longer exists.
