If your hometown got its own Monopoly board, what kinds of places would you expect to see on it? The folks of Warrington are asking themselves this question right now – as the town has won its bid against 19 other places in Cheshire to have its landmarks featured on the famed board game.

While the full launch will happen today (Tuesday) at Walton Hall and Gardens, some of the landmarks have already been revealed. 

These include the soon-to-be-demolished Fiddler’s Ferry power station in Cuerdley, Warrington Transporter Bridge, Warrington Wolves, Walton Hall and Gardens, Warrington Museum and Art Gallery, Victoria Park and the Pink Eye building.

The cooling towers and Lymm Dam will take up the utility squares and the Golden Gates will appear on the wealthier side of the board. 

Interestingly, the ‘community chest’ square will feature Warrington Foodbank, a decision praised by mayor Jean Flaherty who said: ‘The foodbanks do a fantastic job supporting people across the borough to access the food and help they need.

‘They provide a vital service, helping families in need during challenging times. They are very well thought of in our community, so it is a great honour to see them take up a square on the board.’
