The Runcorn and District Historical Society

The Runcorn & District Historical Society was founded in 2000, after meetings between three Runcorn history stalwarts, Messrs W.E.(Bill) Leathwood, H.F.(Bert) Starkey, and C.A.(Alex) Cowan. Well over 50 people attended the inaugural meeting.

Due to the COVID pandemic, our meetings were temporarily cancelled, but are restartng in September 2021 in the Wicksten Drive Christian Centre, Runcorn.

We have a growing number of documents and photos of the Runcorn area, many held privately by our members. We also have this web site, operated by ourselves and therefore easily adaptable at any time. Recently we have opened our own Facebook page here.

Our Membership fee is £12 per annum but visitors are welcome to any of our meetings for £3 per meeting. You can,of course, become a full member at any meeting. You can also print out this MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION FORM.
