Warrington is a twentieth-century New Town with a history stretching back to prehistoric times. Behind the present-day streetscape of a thriving Cheshire economic centre lie the ghosts of its Lancashire past.


‘Secret Warrington’ reveals the often forgotten fascinating stories of the famous, infamous and ordinary characters who have shaped its past and trodden the national or even international stage. Rediscover lost landmarks and the hidden history beneath the modern townscape. Explore Warrington's urban myths and delve into forgotten scandals swept under the carpet of time.


A companion to the ‘A-Z of Warrington’ book this fascinating volume combines in-depth stories with quirky facts to capture your imagination and features many previously unpublished images and documents from the archives and collections of Warrington's historic museum.


Local historian Janice Hayes and Warrington's Archives Officer Philip Jeffs provide the keys to help history detectives unlock the town's secret past and become guardians of its future heritage.


Well-illustrated throughout, this engaging and informative book will appeal to residents and all those with links to the town.
