Bridgewater House, Runcorn
Bridgewater House, Runcorn
Bridgewater House was built by the Duke of Bridgewater around 1760 as a temporary residence during the construction of his canal. The docks seem a strange setting for such an elegant Georgian house and after the filling in of the ladder of locks and gradual deterioration of the dock area the house became somewhat isolated but in the last few years new apartments and a college have been built and the listed building is now the jewel in the crown of Runcorn's riverside regeneration.
