    The

    Research the history of Warrington then go and take a look for the cannon ball marks on the back of St elphins Church. (Did you know ut's the second tallest chutch spire in England!) Just think Cromwell and his troops did battle at the place you stand!
    It is also the scene of much of Warringtons early history.

    Warrington's georgian Town Hall

    The Town Hall was built in 1750, and looks very majestic when viewed through the elaborate golden gates, reputably build for Buckingham Palace, whose occupant (Queen Victoria) rejected them. Never mind, her loss was Warrington's gain!

    The 'Golden Gates' of Warrington

    Now outside Warrington Town hall, these gates were designed to be outside Buckingham Palace, but apparently Queen Victoria didn't want them.
    Well London's loss was Warrington's gain (and have you seen the boring gates now outside Buckingham Palace?

    Warrington Wolves

    by alan30058 Written Oct 9, 2004

    Never visit Warrington without going to watch the Wolves playing Rugby!
    It will probably be the most memorable part of your visit.
