History

In 1968 Warrington was designated a mark 3 partnership New Town. Inspired by the Dutch ‘Heempark’, or homes in parkland, the Development Corporation delivered housing according to an ecological planning approach which found its fullest expression in the conurbation of Birchwood.

In Warrington New Town’s 50th year, this exhibition brings together photographs from the Development Corporation archive and a ‘people’s archive’ reflecting Birchwood as both architects vision and lived and evolving reality.
