UK Blog Entry 2: Welcome to own town
Warrington - We live in the town of Warrington, in Cheshire, North West England. Here is a little taster of the town.
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (January 27, 1832 – January 14, 1898), better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman, and photographer.
His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense.
He was born in the parsonage of Daresbury in Warrington, Cheshire and lived there until he was 11 years old.
In his honour the town square has a sculpture of 'A Mad Tea Party' from 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.'
There is a bench so you can join the tea party, and you can see that the Travelling Bag rose to the challenge.
You can also see the old Barley Mow pub with its sign saying at parts of it date from 1561
and the Town Hall with its elaborate formal Golden Gates (non opening)
