Runcorn Quiz 6 – The answers

Hello again people and pooches. Joe the Cocker here. Our first five quizzes about Runcorn have been very popular so, we have decided to carry on until you tell us that you have had enough. Quiz number 5 was a tough one according to the feedback. Even so, a lot of people joined in. Amazingly, there were four people who identified every photograph correctly. They were Glen Forward, Beryl Littler, Pam Briscoe and Pat Keogh. Well done you four and well done everyone who had a go! So, here are the answers!

1 This fingerpost can be found in the Town Hall grounds. The post points to Leiria, Portugal which is twinned with Runcorn.

2 This wall mounted street lamp can be seen outside of the Clarendon pub.

3 The building below is one of a few Mersey Power substations in the town. This one is located on Heath Road opposite the Norman Road exit.
