Let’s have a look around Warrington in the northern part of this rich county of Cheshire. As we mentioned Warrington sits on the banks of the River Mersey just a stones throw from near neighbour Liverpool (16 miles) and 19 miles west of Manchester.
No wonder Warrington ‘grew up’ here, an important crossing point on the Mersey, in fact it was a settlement for the Romans and later the Saxons – its location was always going to attract – by the Middle Ages it was a market town; but it was during the Industrial Revolution that Warrington came into its own. It was then that it took on the role of manufacturing and as the ‘Centre of Steel’ particularly wire as well as textiles, brewing, tanning and chemicals.
By the end of the 20th Century ‘heavy industry’ has declined but Warrington still prospers as a centre for light industry, distribution and technology.
You might not think that the IKEA building in Warrington is of great note but the fact is it was the first IKEA store to open in the UK back in 1987. Other buildings in Warrington of more historical note include Warrington Town Hall built in 1750 as the home of the Phillips family; the Grade II listed Warrington Museum and Art Gallery; the Art Deco Ritz which became the ABC Cinema and is now Mr Smith’s Nightclub!
Other attractions in Warrington and the surrounding area include
Walton Hall and Gardens: this was once the family home of brewing family, the Greenalls. The gardens have a collection of specimen trees and shrubs and a magnificent display of rhododendron and azaleas which attract visitors in the late spring/summer. It also has rose gardens, ornamental ponds and a children’s zoo.
This Christmas they will celebrate the season in Victorian style with entertainers – magicians and stilt walkers - live music and a Christmas market.
When you visit Warrington’s Museum and Art Gallery one of the first things you notice is the building itself. As we’ve mentioned Grade II listed which means it has special architectural or historical interest and protects the building from enduring changes to its original features. It seems to retain its Victorian atmosphere. Of course its natural history and other exhibits are of interest too.
If you’re feeling like you should be preserved as a national treasure but need some assistance to get around your building, then please give Castle Comfort Stair Lifts a call! We won’t put you on display or ‘list’ you but we can help to improve your quality of life with a stairlift! As national agents for all stairlift manufacturers we’re in the position to advise on which one will suit you, your home and your budget best. Please call your local office on 0151 676 2727 for more details.

Near to Warrington is the picturesque village of Lymm, a conservation area for its many historical buildings and the home of Sir Bobby Charlton, footballing legend.
Whilst we talk of great games, we can’t leave Warrington without mentioning the Warrington Wolves.

They are one of the original clubs, twenty two in total that formed the Northern Rugby Football Union at the end of the 19th century.
