Wilderspool was never in the County Palatine of Lancashire as it lay south of the Mersey, but north of the Ship Canal. In 1889 the area immediately around Wilderspool became part of administrative Lancashire with the boundary moving one mile south.
So, when Wilderpool was built and it became home to Warrington, it was indeed in Cheshire. The HJ Stadium is firmly in Palatinate Lancashire. I got funny looks at work once for writing the office address as Lancashire and not Cheshire.
It's all irrelevant anyway. I'm from Ulverston and I'd never consider myself Lancastrian.

The club where Eurovision isn't a dirty word. A waltz through the leopard skin lined world of Tom Jones, Bert Kampfert and Burt Bacharach. Step out to the sound of the happy hammond and swing to the seductive sounds of the samba.
DJ's, raffles, cocktails and wide collars. Please dress smart. Gentlemen might like to wear a suit.
Same price. Same music. Same rubbish prizes.
