Warrington Rundown

Warrington began life as part of Lancashire, but in 1974 was formally declared part of the New Borough of Warrington in Cheshire, having been designated a New Town in 1968. Warrington’s ‘new’ status is, however in direct contradiction with its ancient history, its close proximity to Liverpool and Manchester, plus its strategic position on the banks of the River Mersey ensuring its importance from Roman times onwards.

The armies of Oliver Cromwell and the Earl of Derby stationed themselves here, and Cromwell’s Cottage is where he was believed to have stayed. Armed forces once again came to Warrington during the Second World War, when Burtonwood RAF base became the largest US Army Air Force base outside the United States, making it quite the celeb hangout with Humphrey Bogart and Bob Hope paying a visit to cheer up GIs. Famous Warringtonians include cheeky chappie George Formby, Tim Curry (just a sweet transvestite) and DJ Chris Evans.

Despite its close proximity to some of the biggest retail outlets in the UK, Warrington holds its own with a huge out of town Retail Park, Gemini. Rugby league is the premier sport – the Warrington Wolves having moved to the new Halliwell Jones Stadium.
