Croft is a civil parish and a village in Warrington. The suburb is situated four miles in northern Warrington town center. Croft, a residential area, has about 2,290 population according to the 2001 census. The village is located in the borough of Warrington northern edge. And the interchange north of the M62 and M6 motorways is termed the Croft Interchange. The semi-rural area is near to the border with Greater Manchester and Merseyside, and originally in Lancashire. More so, the village borders Lowton to the east, Culcheth to the east, Risley to the South, and Winwick to the west.
Croft was in November 1981 struck by a tornado in an unprecedented manner. The victims of the natural disaster later migrated to Warrington town center.
Meanwhile, there are two major churches, two basic schools, and a big field for children in the green of the village. There are other facilities: horse ridings, a youth center, bowling greens, and golf ranges. But there is a lack of village shops.
In sporting, the Croft Football team developed three players that later had prominent professional careers. For instance, Hunt played in the Croft team and later joined and played for the Reds (Liverpool). He was a member of the 1966 England World Cup-winning country. Also, Tommy Lawrence joined Scotland and Liverpool. At the same time, Green Johnny played with Armfield Jimmy in Blackpool.
Furthermore, Croft has 19 buses that serve the village en route between Warrington through Winwick and Leigh through Culcheth. Also, is a service going to Birchwood. Nowadays, because the government aims to construct a big speed rail-line close to Croft, the pathway to most of her top neighbor, Culcheth, might be compromised; it would slow down transport between the both. The intent to construct two high speeds has generated strong criticism because of its expenses, commercial buildings and home destructions, and 19,590 job displacements.
