Runcorn is an industrial town and cargo port in the county of Cheshire, England. The town is on the southern bank of the River Mersey where the estuary narrows to form Runcorn Gap. Runcorn is 16 miles east of Liverpool and is situated on both the Manchester Ship Canal and the Bridgewater Canal.
Despite the industrialization of the area and density of housing, Runcorn has green spaces on Runcorn Hill and in the extensive Town Park.
The Silver Jubilee Bridge which crosses the Runcorn Gap is one of Runcorn's landmarks and is the lowest bridge spanning the River Mersey.
Buildings of character include the All Saints Parish Church, built of red sandstone, the Town Hall and St Mary's Church in Halton. The ruins of Halton Castle remain on top of Halton Hill near the town centre. A walk to the top gives excellent views from the castle grounds.
