Warrington Walking Day

Where: Warrington, Cheshire starting outside the Town Hall
When: Friday near 1st July
Time: 10am - 1pm

 

A century or so ago, it was common across the country for churches to organise a walking day when groups such as Scouts, Guides and bands would march with their banners around the locality. Few of these events survive today, and the walk at Warrington is the best-known of the survivors. Around 4000 people take part in the perambulation with pipe bands,marching bands, banners and representatives from the local churches of all denominations.

Helpful Hints

Roads in the town centre are closed off for the procession so arrive in plenty of time.

In 2014 it was on Friday 27th June – 2015 date is yet to be confirmed.
