Appleton is a civil parish and suburb of Warrington in Cheshire, England.

Geography and landmarks[edit]

The A49 road runs from neighbouring Stockton Heath up the hill into Appleton and links Warrington town centre with the M56 motorway.

At the top of Appleton is Warrington Golf Club. There is also a large cemetery situated nearby which is named Fox Covert Cemetery. The cemetery has excellent views overlooking the whole of Warrington and is locally called Hillcliffe. This is a very popular vantage point on special occasions, such as Guy Fawkes Night and New Year's Eve.

There are four schools in Appleton: Bridgewater High School, Broomfields Junior School, St Monica's Catholic Primary School and Cobbs Infant and Nursery School.
