Why is the sea salty? Why is it essential for life?

Why was the Salt Industry so important centuries ago on the North of the Isle of Wight, Lymington and Pennington? Wight Salt is the first SeaSalt business on the Isle of Wight for nearly 90 years since the closure of the Newtown Saltern in 1930. Simon Davis, owner of Wight Salt will give a fascinating traversal of a forgotten, but highly significant industry.
