Thumbnails of Higher Runcorn

"Higher Runcorn" was, and still is, an area which lay approximately 1 Km. south of the main township. It consisted of some large houses, a couple of farms with orchards. Fields separated it from "Runcorn", to which it was joined by two tracks which became "Greenway Road" and "The Holloway". The south side of the present "Moughland Lane" also had large houses along its south side. By the 1880's housing was already beginning to spread up Greenway Road to eventually join Runcorn and Higher Runcorn together.
