Wilderspool is a district of Warrington, England, located near the town centre. It consists of Wilderspool Causeway and the streets coming off it, the limits being the River Mersey into Stockton Heath (where it turns into London Road), Bridgefoot (near the town centre), and Centre Park. The district incorporates Priestley College, Wilderspool Stadium, Wilderspool depot (owned by Warrington Borough Transport), a Morrisons supermarket, and the Riverside Retail Park. Excavations in the area have shown Roman settlement,[1] and there are parts of a walled town with evidence of industrial activity.
