Warrington Town Hall (Bank Hall)
Warrington Town Hall (Bank Hall), taken 5 years ago
Bank Hall was built in 1750. At the time, it was set in open fields which extended down to the River Mersey. Later, a perimeter wall was added around the grounds to provide some privacy as the population of Warrington began to grow.

The town council bought the hall, along with the 13-acre grounds surrounding it, in 1872. The building has been the Town Hall ever since, and the grounds are known as Bank Park, which were opened as the town's first public park in 1873.

The building is Grade I listed (LinkExternal link The National Heritage List for England).
