The mfrs. comprise wire-work, pins, files, edge-tools, cotton, glass, soap, &c. Warrington is noted for its ale. There are many fine public buildings, and a public park and gardens. Warrington is an old town (mentioned in Domesday Book as "Wallintun"), and has still some quaint timber houses. The parish church stands on the site of an ancient Saxon church dedicated to St Elphin. An Augustinian friary was erected in 1379, but no trace of it remains. The bridge was built in 1496; being the principal passage over the river from Cheshire to Lancashire, it has been the scene of many conflicts. Warrington was made a parl. bor. in 1832, and a mun. bor. in 1847; it returns 1 member to Parliament.
