Finally, my knowledge of my hometown, although far from complete, is the result of thousands of conversations with family and friends and dozens of museum and library visits. If you haven't visited Warrington library or museum of late you should do so - they are a fascinating source of information.

This website would not have been possible without the sterling work of Warrington's many past and present historians, antiquarians and enthusiasts and I would like to thank them for inspiring me to create this website.

A famous American author once wrote: "History remembers only the brilliant failures and the brilliant successes." This website hopes to recall for prosterity some of the fantastic in-betweens.
