A BUILDING that was once home to one of Warrington's most well-known businesses is up for sale.

The former Osnath Pramworks on Lythgoes Lane is on the market.

And it could be yours for just £50,000.

The leasehold is available to use the site as a children's nursery for the next 10 years.

It was most recently used as a furniture shop but has been converted, ready to be used as a nursery.

Warrington Guardian:

The business will operate across the ground floor and first floors of the property

In its hey day, the building was used to make prams which were coveted around the world.

In 1872 William Ashton turned finding the solution to a family problem into a business.

With two young children he needed a means of transporting them in the days before every family owned a car.

His solution was to build a miniature of a horse drawn coach called a ‘brougham’ where the body was carried on springs to stop the toddlers being jolted on the cobble stone pavements.

It was known as the Rolls Royce of prams and were bought by the British and Japanese royalty, who were so impressed by the quality.
