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, held in the Christ Church Hall at Weston Point. Due to this hall being too small, we changed the venue to St. John's (Weston) Church hall in 2004. At present (2020) we have over 60 members, and we meet once per month for talks and events,but since March 2020 our meetings have been suspended due to the Covid 19 outbreak. 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. and our own Facebook page.
