Used to be called Ashfield House, it was a former farm, and it was where I spent my early childhood.

The tramp steamer Mary P Cooper sank about here in March 1961, following a head-on collision with the SS Foamville. What an appropriate name, given the state of the Mersey and Irwell at that time. Fortunately, the crew were rescued unharmed, thanks in part to a policeman patrolling on the road to the right, and the fact that the youth of that time weren't in the habit of removing lifebelts for fun.

This area of Warrington is perhaps the most accessible and interesting place to see the Manchester Canal.
