Thelwall is a suburban village in Warrington, Cheshire, England, located close to the Lymm junction of the M6. It is a popular misconception that Thelwall is the 'smallest city in England' (although Thelwall is not in fact a city, nor if it were would it be the smallest in England as the City of London, which truly is the smallest city in England, is marginally smaller).
Thelwall nowadays borders the villages of Lymm and Grappenhall, and (across the Manchester Ship Canal), Latchford. It is also one of the two principal settlements of Grappenhall and Thelwall civil parish. According to the 2001 census, the population of the entire civil parish was 9,377.
Thelwall is perhaps best known for the [[wikipedia:Thelwall Viaduct|Thelwall Viaduct, which carries the M6 Motorway across the Manchester Ship Canal. The viaduct is carried on two bridges which opened in July 1963 and in 1996. The village is situated between this Canal and the Bridgewater Canal.
