SJ5182 : Runcorn

taken 11 years ago, near to Runcorn, Halton, Great Britain

Runcorn is a 1960s new town developed to relieve population pressures elsewhere in the north-west; the old part of the town, however, is collected around the Bridgewater Canal close to the River Mersey. This picture shows the back of commercial properties on High Street, seen from the canal bank. The Runcorn - Widnes road bridge, opened in 1961, looms over the scene.
