Winsford Salt Mine
insford Salt Mine has been described in a

Just a few points from the article.
- There are 138 miles of roads
- It has an Environmental Agency permit to store waste, which carries a 50,000 year environmental
- There is 2m cubic metres of space set aside for waste. 60 football pitches stacked 7 metres
high; yet this is only a small fraction of the available space.
There is so much more in the article.
