The Walk in Centre is located in Webster Court within the heart of Gemini Business Park, just 3 miles to the North of Warrington town centre. It is mid-way between Liverpool and Manchester, and is accessed off Westbrook Crescent, approximately ½ mile from Junction 8 of the M62 motorway. Warrington is the largest town in the county of Cheshire. It is located on the banks of the River Mersey, 20 miles away from both Liverpool and Manchester. The population in 2016 was estimated at just over 200,000. It was founded by the Romans as an important crossing place on the River Mersey. A new settlement was later set up by the Saxons. In the Middle Ages, Warrington was established as a market town with a tradition of textile and tool production. The urbanisation of Warrington coincided with the Industrial Revolution, particularly after the River Mersey was made navigable in the 18th century. Today, the town is well connected with the West Coast Main train line running north to south through it and the Liverpool to Manchester railway west to east. The Manchester Ship canal cuts through the south of the borough (west to east), and the M56, M6 and M62 motorways surround the town. Rugby league is the town’s premier sport in the form of Warrington Wolves. They have the nickname of The Wire because of Warrington’s history of wire making.
