Warrington New Town:
The old A574

As a New Town, Warrington is unusual in that it isn't new. By the 1970s it was already a sizeable industrial town, but it was granted New Town status and trebled in size. The place today features Victorian inner suburbs and leafy modernist outer ones.

The original route of the A574 is used here as a case study of how developers went about converting an old town to a new one.
