Warrington is an old-established town, with a rapidly changing townscape during a transformation from a traditional industrial Lancashire centre to a twenty-first century Cheshire New Town. In ‘Warrington Reflections’, local author and historian Janice Hayes reveals these fascinating changes captured by the cameras of local amateur and professional photographers over the last 170 years.


Snapshots and official images document changing daily life around the many districts which make up present-day Warrington, while the town centre seems changed almost beyond recognition. Remarkable images from the dawn of photography in the 1850s captured the last days of the medieval market place whilst contemporary photographers have recorded the rapidly changing streetscape around Bridge Street and the newly developed Time Square.


Over the last fifty years Warrington has been a town in constant evolution. Long-established Warringtonians struggle to remember the once familiar landmarks of shops and workplaces whilst newer residents have yet to discover the town’s rich history. ‘Warrington Reflections’ provides a superb opportunity to travel through time in 180 unique images, which reveal clues to the town’s past by merging archive and contemporary pictures.This fascinating visual chronicle will evoke memories for residents and all those with links to the town.
