Runcorn Quiz 8 – Do you know our town?

Hello again people and pooches. Joe the Cocker here. The quizzes still seem to be popular during the lockdown, while we are all limited in what we can do. We have concentrated on a walk around the older parts of the town this week. The winner of Quiz 7 was the eagle-eyed Beryl Littler, with a full house. Congratulations. As usual, the quiz is just for fun and you can keep a note of your answers until we post them in a few days. You can also private message me with your attempts. It’s up to you. So, here we go!

1Β  This mosaic door entrance can be seen where?

2 This building was obviously built in 1888 but, where can it be found?

    1. 100% except the substation is the old hearse house. Correct location though. Glad that you are enjoying. That was my intention to try to do my bit during these dark times. I will give you a mention at the start of the next quiz. I only have your forename at the moment. Thank you πŸΎπŸΎπŸ‘


      1. My name is Pat Keogh I always take part think it is great what you are doing. I did know it was called the old hearse house but later known as a sub station. Regards.
