Warburton Bridge is a bridge on the B5159 across the River Mersey and Manchester Ship Canal between Warburton and Hollins Green and as such crosses the historic boundary between Lancashire and Cheshire.
A stone bridge was erected across the River Mersey in 1863. With the construction of the Ship Canal a high level bridge was built, the river was diverted and its course is now dried up.
In May 2018, the toll booth was burned down.
