From The Warrington Guardian

Warrington Guardian, July 2001:

Six town properties go on the danger list. - Six Warrington properties are in danger of being lost forever due to neglect and decay, according to a new report by English Heritage. The 2001 register of grade one and two listed buildings highlights  important historical buildings. "There is much to be done," said Sir Neil Cossons, chairman of English heritage. "The buildings need long-term stewardship if we are to save them from future generations to enjoy".... One of the more unusual structures on the register is the Bank Quay transporter bridge near Crosfields, which is owned by the Borough Council. Built in 1904 the bridge is no longer usable, but its gondola is intact.
