When it comes to warehoueses, Warrington has more than it's fair share. That's not entirely surprisoing given the excellent transport links - to the West is the the Port of Runcorn on the River Mersey which runs out to Liverpool and the Irish Sea. To the North, East and South are three major motoways - the M6, M62 and M56 - which connect Warrington to the industrial north.
The Port is situated where the River Mersey narrows, known as Runcorn Gap. Originally the port opened directly into the Mersey, but it now links with the Manchester canal. The location has meant that a number of warehousing companies have located themseves there. Space is available on a short or long term basis through Stowga.
