Warrington Guardian

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Warrington Guardian is a local newspaper that has been published in Warrington, England, since 1853, originally published weekly on Saturdays.[1] In 1856 it was bought by Alexander Mackie, who used it as a springboard to establish a number of other "Guardian" titles in Cheshire: the Northwich Guardian in 1861, the Altrincham Guardian in 1862, the Crewe Guardian in 1863, and the Chester Guardian in 1867.[2] By 1859 the Warrington Guardian had a circulation of 2200.[1] As of 2013 the paper is owned by Newsquest.
