Description

Warrington For Ever! reveals what makes Warrington unique as a town and celebrates the distinctive character of its many districts. The text combines archive research with memories and photographs gathered from community groups who have recorded their own histories. Running parrallel to the portraits of local places are the stories of local people, the 'Warringtonians' - famous, infamous and 'ordinary' - who have helped to shape Warrington's past. Much of the material for the book was collected during the Gateway Through Time Project, Warrington Museum's Heritage Lottery Fund local history initiative. The book features many previously unpublished photographs and oral testimonies, and it blends together official records with family archives and community memories to create a vivid living history of the town. Warrington For Ever! examines the changing face of Warrington and the factors which have shaped its growth, zooming in on fifteen distinct areas ranging from the historic town centre to picturesque outlying rural districts ad workday housing estates. Memories of historic halls are contrasted with the fondly remembered corner shop, and one of Shakespeare's characters shares the stage with the town's unsung heroes. This remarkable book celebrates the work of all those who have taken part in this important town-wide project. It should serve as an inspiration for those who have still to explore the fascinating history of their own area or to document the life of another Warringtonian whose personal story is a missing piece of the jigsaw of Warrington's past.
