Packet House building on Bridge Street now under offer


PROMINENT buildings on a large corner plot in Warrington town center are now on offer.

This suggests that a huge development is planned on the corner of Bridge Street and Mersey Street in Bridgefoot.

The under-supply buildings in question total six on Bridge Street itself, including the former Packet House pub.

Loved by generations of Warrington residents, the building has fallen into such disrepair over the past decade that it has been described as ‘dying to shame’.

Priory House on Mersey Street is also on offer, meaning if supply comes from the same source, huge development could be underway.

The buildings have a combined value of over £1.8million and are being advertised for bids above that amount.

Priory House itself is listed for offers over £1million, while offers over £250,000 are sought for Packet House.

Estate agent listings indicate that all buildings could offer a “development opportunity”.

The old Packet House was one of Warrington’s most popular bars.

It was highly regarded by all at Warrington until the last owner Ethel Smith retired in 1976.

It has gone through many rebrands and relaunch since then, including Tiger Tiger and Bar Zero, but closed in the early 2000s.
