I used to live there, it is is real sh*thole. The highlights are the small field near the shops on the Town Hall estate - although please be careful to avoid the syringes and rusty prams.

There is also the Murdishaw estate which is not lovely at this time of year. Some people like Windmill Hill but I always found that a bit too safe and not quite violent enough. Some people even say please and thank you there.

I would suggest folk go to Reykjavik before trying Runcorn.

Location : Outside there's a box car waiting, outside the family stew. Out by the fire breathing, outside we wait till face turns blue. I know the nervous walking, I know the dirty beard hangs. Out by the box car waiting, take me away to nowhere plans. There is a wait so long (so long, so long). You'll never wait so long. Here comes Julius. Here comes Julius. Here comes Julius.

Agreed but have you been to Runcorn?

I'd happily reluctantly show you around but CC rules won't allow it.

I have not been to Runcorn, though I may have passed by on my way to Holyhead.

I'm not sure CC rules would apply to the Runcorn thread, especially if we wear our covid masks and are unable to identify each other.

Yes, many times, both old and new towns, what a s**thole.

Did some research on Tripadvisor and the Town Hall, a bridge and a water tower are amongst the top 11 things to do in Runcorn.

Fun fact, the bridge smelled like rotting meat for the longest time due to a closed down abattoir nearby. There was (possibly an urban legend) That there were that many flies in there that when they fumigated the place the carpet of flies was over a foot thick.

Town hall is nice though.

Had a flatmate in Dundee who came from Runcorn. Went by the nickname Mugger Matt because one of the Dundee locals tried to mug him and Matt ended up taking the guy's wallet from him.

The bridge is sh*t. It takes you from Runcorn to Widnes. That's like choosing between herpes and the other one that starts with a 'g'. It also, as riCK pointed out, smells of dead meat.

Decent place to watch people jump to their death though.

This thread is alive and well.

Maybe Jeff/Geoff will see it and realise what he is missing.

My first interaction with Jeff was on the Reykjavik thread.  He accused me of having a high opinion of myself, which shows just how perspicacious he is.  Though nowhere near as perspicacious as me.

People do jump to their deaths but they suffocate rather than drown.
