Geography: Birchwood

Key points of interest in Birchwood, Warrington, Cheshire, England. Once you have crossed through all the listed words, you will find (some of) the words contained in a quotation on the place. The name change of the town from Risley to Birchwood took place in the late 1960’s, when the redevelopment of the town became a central focus of the Warrington New Town Development Corporation (Tuohey, 2010/11). The change in name is somewhat ironic, despite it being a logical one, seeing that the area east of Birchwood mainly consists of birch forests, as it was after this time that the town truly became a thriving business centre, losing its rural character for once and all (“Birchwood”, [s.d.]). QUOTATION George Sampson, 2008 winner of ITV talent show Britain’s Got Talent, in which he breakdanced on-stage to a Gene Kelly hit Singin’ in the Rain before a TV audience of 13.1 million, heralds from Birchwood. In an interview with BBC News entertainment reporter Liam Allen he is reported as saying “I have a spine disease called Scheuermann's disease ... It's not going to stop me dancing - I'm fine about it” (Allen, 2008). SOURCES Allen, Liam. 2008. Talking Shop: George Sampson.
