Availability: In stock

From its heyday in the nineteenth century as a major centre of wire making, textiles, chemical production and brewing, through to its subesquent reinvention as a new town in the late 1960s, Warrington has a proud heritage. In this new book, local author and cultural curator Janice Hayes takes the reader on a fascinating A–Z tour of the town’s history, from Roman Wilderspool via a lost medieval castle to the magnificent Town Hall adorned with its Golden Gates and highlights Warrington’s unique customs. Along the way meet the famous and infamous characters who have played their parts on the local and even international stage, shaping the town’s history and key events.
