It has been suggested that Warburton was the site of an Anglo-Saxon burgh or defended settlement, possibly either called "Toppingburgh" or Weard byrig, established by Aethelflaed, Queen of the Mercians, in 915 during the wars with the Vikings.
However, it now seems likely that site lay on the Wales–Cheshire border.
Warburton lies in an ancient landscape, on the border of East Cheshire and Trafford, Greater Manchester, in North West England.
Today it is best known for the busy toll-bridge that crosses the now dry river bed of the Mersey, and its two parish churches.
