SJ6087 : The Academy

taken 7 years ago, near to Warrington, Great Britain

The Academy
The Academy
The Academy at the bottom of Bridge Street, now home to the Warrington Guardian Newspaper Offices. It was originally a teaching establishment from 1756 to 1782 when it closed but in that time, it had gained a reputation as a dissenters' institute (it opposed the state church in England). Sometime after its closure, it was moved from its original location to where it stands now. There is a statue of Oliver Cromwell outside the building. For more details see LinkExternal link
