Warrington – Saturday 17th September 2022

Warrington in Cheshire stands close to the River Mersey, and one of its claims to fame is that it was the first place in the UK to have an Ikea store!  Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, who, as Lewis Carroll, wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking Glass, was born nearby and the town is rightly proud of its association.  In Old Market Place there is a large sculpture of the Mad Hatters’ Tea Party by sculptor Edwin Russell, and the Waterstones, which is housed in a modern shopping centre has an Alice in Wonderland mural.

Old Fish Market

The old Fish Market was restored and moved to a new home in Old Market Place where it is used for various performances, and has a huge screen which shows sporting events. On the day we visited a choir performance was taking place.
