The Bleach Packers – natural and rural landscapes

Below are images of Halton, from past and present.

Laurence Payot has been appointed by Halton Borough Council to create an ambitious artwork inspired by Halton chemical industry, and working with young people from the borough. Following a series of workshops in October/November 2021, the work will consist of large scale public projections, reinventing the stories of the Halton Bleach Packers and other trades of the chemical industry. More information and behind the scenes available here.

West Bank was created by the chemical industry – a close knit community that grew up alongside its factories, amongst its pollution and on top of its waste.
