New lead theft in Northwich

Northwich lead theft

We have covered several prominent lead thefts on this blog in the past, including locations such as the National Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port, St. Mary’s Centre in Chester and Neston Civic Hall. For a while, it seemed like we were getting called out to a new lead theft every week, with the thievery growing more audacious with each case, culminating in the theft of the Willaston War Memorial Plaque (covered in publications such as the Telegraph), and its subsequent restoration.

Recently, a new lead theft was reported at a building in Northwich. The half-timbered building’s protective lead flashings were callously ripped out, damaging the surrounding slates and leaving sections of the roof exposed. It has been a good number of months since we last investigated a metal theft, so we hope this isn’t the start of a new trend.
