  • Here are the details of maps for Runcorn:

  • Lancashire Sheet 115.13 Runcorn 1905 - published 1989; intro by Mike Greatbatch. ISBN.978-0-85054-330-8

    Although Runcorn is historically in Cheshire, we have published it in the Lancashire series so that the sheetlines link up better with other maps.

    This detailed map covers the main area of Runcorn, plus the southern tip of Widnes around West Bank. Coverage stretches from West Street Widnes southward to York Street Runcorn, and from Trentham Street eastward to Sea Lane. Features include Runcorn railway and road bridges, Runcorn station, Bridgewater Canal incl most of Old and New locks and Sebastopol Arm, Waterloo Bridge, Runcorn Alkali Works, All Saints church, Bridgewater Foundry, Holy Trinity church, Hazlehurst Soap Works, St Luke's Chapel, football ground, Highfield Tannery, Australian Alum Works, Stonehills, graving docks, Manchester Ship Canal with Lower Dock and shipbuilding yard, Swing Bridge, Wigg Works, Mersey, West Bank, West Bank Dock etc. On the reverse we include a list of private residents from a 1906 directory.

    The map links up with Lancashire Sheets 115.09 Widnes to the north.
