Warrington Museum & Art Gallery


Our second exhibition about Warrington in the Great War of 1914-1918 looks at life on the Home Front.

Munitions girls; nurses, aid workers, conscientious objectors and the women left behind fighting on the kitchen front all had their part to play in the story of these tumultuous years.
