Since then Runcorn can only really be associated with illiterate, jobless parasites living off a diet of alchohol, drugs and sausage rolls from Greggs (Whatever happened to Sex, Drugs and Rock n’ Roll). The vast majority of the people who live here are blissfully unaware of their lowly pond dweller status as they only really have Widnesians to compare themselves too. In comparison to Widnes however, Runcorn is a veritable paradise on earth. Widnes really does take the gold medal when it comes to idiot yokels.

I think Runcorn is a pleasant town, I have never actually ever seen any crime happen here or gangs walking round in track suits (and I've been here a lot). It's a great place to unwind from city life for a day, as there is not much traffic and it's not that busy.
The Runcorn pasties are fantastic and can be complimented by looking over the River while eating.
Wigg Island, opposite Runcorn in the River Mersey is a nature reserve, many wildlife can be seen by visiting the island.
