List of conservation areas in Warrington

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Bridge Street Conservation Area includes many late Victorian shop buildings such as these which are a particularly noteworthy example of faience cladding.

As of February 2016, there are 16 Conservation Areas in the borough of Warrington in Cheshire, England. The origins of Warrington are as a mediaeval market town and crossing point of the River Mersey, it grew rapidly during Industrial Revolution on the back of industries such as brewing, tanning and especially wire manufacturing. Further expansion followed the Second World War when it was selected as a New Town. The population is now over 200,000. Since 1971 several Conservation Areas have been designated in Warrington in recognition of their special architectural and historical interest.
