Warrington history

Warrington has been built on ancient foundations dating back to before the time of the Domesday Book. In fact, in 1086 Warrington was recorded as only being a small village with St Elphin's Church sitting at the centre of village life.

In the 12th century, Warrington was granted the right to hold a fair once a year that attracted sellers and buyers from a very wide area. This led to the place growing to become a very important market town. Later in the 13th century, the town was given a charter that granted the townspeople special rights.

One of the most significant events in Warrington's history was the building of a stone bridge in 1495 that spanned the river Mersey. This really put Warrington on the map and established the town as a central hub for trade and attracted a lot of wealthy and notable figures over the years to trade and reside in the town.

As the town continued to grow it became know for its sacking and canvas industry. Being close to Liverpool and its seafaring links, Warrington benefited greatly through the production of sailcloth for the many trading fleets of sailing ships coming in and out of Liverpool. In fact, it was noted that as well as sailcloth for trade ships, Warrington supplied 'nearly one half of the Navy of Great Britain' during its sailing ship era.

In the late 19th century the town saw beautiful new parks opened. Bank Park opened to the public in 1873. Victoria Park opened in 1897, as did Queens Gardens.

Warrington transport links

One of the many reasons why people choose to move to Warrington is for its excellent transport links. In 1831 Warrington was connected to both Liverpool and Manchester by the railway. These days you can not only benefit from good rail links via the West Coast Mainline and Trans-Pennine route that link both Liverpool and Manchester international airports, but also with the towns central location on three major motorway networks, M6, M56 and M62.

It is no wonder that Warrington has grown to be an important place for business and employment that attracts new residents to settle here from all over the country – as well as the world!

New housing developments

During the late 1960's Warrington was given a modern makeover and was made into a new town. New suburbs were developed with housing built for incoming people from the Greater Manchester area and new industrial estates were built to encourage businesses and employment.

Warrington's popularity with families choosing to settle here doesn't seem to be slowing down. With the new Chapelford Urban Village development in west Warrington of 2,000 new build homes in recent years, and a further £1 billion redevelopment being undertaken on the former Burtonwood Air Base, even more top-quality housing, business opportunities and employment are heading to this area.
