Stockton Heath is a civil parish and suburb of Warrington, Cheshire, England.

It is located to the north of the Bridgewater Canal and to the south of the Manchester Ship Canal, which divides Stockton Heath from Latchford and north Warrington. Victoria Square is at the centre of Stockton Heath and is on the crossroads of the A49 and A56.

Until the 1970s, the Victoria Hotel stood on this square but its location has been redeveloped.

North of the square is the main shopping area which includes the Forge Shopping Centre, developed on the site of the old forge (Caldwell's).

Stockton Heath is home to a number of modern bars and restaurants, as well as traditional public houses.

The Red Lion Inn dates back to the early 19th century and the Mulberry Tree on Victoria Square, opened in its present building (replacing earlier premises dating from 1725) in March 1907 [2].

Since 1988, much of the centre of Stockton Heath has been designated a conservation area to preserve its character but, at the same time, there has been redevelopment work with several new bars and restaurants moving into the centre of Stockton Heath.

A Roman road ran through Stockton Heath, along the route now known (appropriately) as Roman Road.

Unverified local legend has it that many of the parliamentarian soldiers were buried at Hill Cliffe and Budworth.
