Patrick Warburton is currently married to Cathy Jennings.
The village of Lymm lies to the south west of Warburton in the borough of Warrington, with the River Bollin forming the border between the two villages.
The local geology is lower keuper marl, with a ridge of sand and gravel running from Warburton to Dunham.
The main roads running through Warburton are the A6144 and B5159.
The high-level cantilever bridge crosses the Manchester Ship Canal on the B5159 road, connecting the A57 with the A6144, and was commissioned under the Rixton & Warburton Bridge Act 1863.
The original stone bridge spanned the River Mersey prior to its later diversion into the Manchester Ship Canal.
Although the Domesday Book records no church in Warburton, it is possible that the church dedicated to Saint Werburgh is pre-Conquest.
