Runcorn Docks

Runcorn Docks

Back to table of results
T1108. Runcorn had seen a great deal of activity before the construction of the Manchester Ship Canal, with docks constructed by the Duke of Bridgewater for the Bridgewater Canal. Here the docks are full of sailing vessels. When the Ship Canal opened such ships could not pass the fixed level bridges. Instead they transferred their loads to more suitable vessels at Runcorn.
