Pocket Guide: Runcorn

Runcorn is an industrial town that juts into the Mersey's south bank, at the so-called Runcorn Gap. The Manchester and Bridgewater Canals both conjoin here and Liverpool is just 16 miles away. There were settlements here from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age, but it was not until Ethelfleda in 915AD built a fort on Castle Rock that Runcorn entered documented history. The castle was built to help protect Mercia, the fledgling English state, from the Vikings. In the 1070s the Normans built another castle on nearby Halton Hill, the remains of which can still be seen.

Runcorn's Industrial Heritage

Although Runcorn was a popular health resort in the 18th Century, it was only when the Industrial Revolution came along that the town started to become the central regional hub which we see today. Before then it was little more than a hamlet, but the construction of the mighty Trent and Mersey Canal, and the Bridgewater Canal, changed all that and once the waterways had been opened Runcorn never looked back. See for yourself what a vibrant and fascinating place it has become when you stay in or near Runcorn at a suitable Cheshire hotel.

A notable landmark in Runcorn is the Silver Jubilee Bridge across the Mersey, and you should also see the ruins of Halton Castle near the centre of town. Another popular attraction here is Norton Priory Museum and Gardens.
