Runcorn is situated on the southern bank of the River Mersey where the estuary narrows to form Runcorn Gap. Directly to the north across the Mersey is the town of Widnes.
The earliest written reference to the town is in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, where it is spelled Rumcofan, literally “a wide cove or bay”. This word is derived from the Old English words rúm (“wide” or “broad”) and cofa (“cave” or “cove”). Other historical spellings of Runcorn include Rumcoven, Ronchestorn, Runckhorne, and Runcorne. The earliest recorded event in its history is the building by Ethelfleda of a fortification at Runcorn to protect the northern frontier of her kingdom of Mercia against the Vikings in 915. The fort was built on Castle Rock overlooking the River Mersey at Runcorn Gap.
Prior to the industrial revolution Runcorn was a small, isolated village. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries Runcorn was a health resort then towards the end of the 18th century, a port began to develop on the south bank of the River Mersey. During the 19th century, industry developed in Runcorn including the manufacture of soap and alkali, quarrying, shipbuilding, engineering and tanning. Except for chemicals, all of the old industries have disappeared from Runcorn and there has been diversification, in particular because of the close links to the motorway system and the development of warehousing and distribution centres. In the 1960–’70s Runcorn expanded with the development of a new town to the east of the existing town and areas of private housing have been established, farther to the east. This has resulted in the population of Runcorn more than doubling from around 30,000 to its present level of 61,000.
Famous Lawyer Sir John Chesshyre (1662–1738), was born at Hallwood, Halton near Runcorn. He rose to the position of king’s first serjeant, the premier legal adviser to the monarch at that time. He is remembered as founder of Halton Library which today is a Grade II listed building and serves as a meeting room.
