Runcorn – Suburb Profile

Runcorn, a residential suburb, is 14 km south-east of central Brisbane. It was reportedly named after Runcorn, Cheshire, England, the birth place of a local clergyman (c1880).

Two tributary headwaters of the Bulimba Creek rise in Runcorn, identifiable by parklands north of the Runcorn railway station and on the suburb’s eastern boundary.

Runcorn and neighbouring Sunnybank are on the South Coast railway line (1885). The Runcorn post office was opened in 1887 and the primary school in 1901. Now situated in Sunnybank, the Runcorn primary school’s catchment was in both districts. Sunnybank had several orchardists but Runcorn’s agriculture was more broad acre: just eight farmers and a nursery worker were listed in the post office directory in 1902. Some years later the Australian Fertilizer factory was opened on the site of a former bonemill. By the mid-1930s farming had altered. Most were poultry farmers (23), and another ten were described simply as ‘farmers’. There were also two stores, two bakers, a butcher and the Runcorn hall (1926) in Nathan Road.

In the late 1960s urban development began in Runcorn, moving out from the railway station. Runcorn Heights primary school, in the south of the suburb, was opened in 1975 and Runcorn high school in 1986. By the mid-1970s Runcorn’s eastern boundary had moved into Kuraby, from Warrigal Road to Bulimba Creek.

There were three decades of urban growth in Runcorn. As its southern extremity the Queensland State Archives was built (1993) and there still remained some unsubdivided land near Bulimba Creek.

Shopping was provided at several drive-in centres in Sunnybank and Sunnybank Hills. Runcorn’s drive-in, a supermarket and 25 shops, was opened in 1991 on its northern border, adjoining Eight Mile Plains. There is also a smaller shopping area in Beenleigh Road midway between Runcorn and Fruitgrove railway stations.

The railway station and locality south-west of the Runcorn railway station is Fruitgrove, named in 1935 after a surrounding housing estate.

The major landmark in the town is Halton Castle on the top of Halton Hill near the geographical centre of the town. Only ruins of the castle exist, but there are widespread views from the top of the hill. The interior of the castle grounds is open at advertised times.[61] Incorporated in the castle walls is the Castle Hotel, which used to include a courthouse on the first floor. Another landmark is Norton water tower, built of Runcorn sandstone, 112 feet (34 m) high, which holds 672,000 imperial gallons (3 million litres) of water and supplies water to Liverpool.An important historical site and the major visitor centre in the town is Norton Priory, now a museum. The site contains the remains of a priory with adjacent gardens, formerly of a country house. Nearby are a walled garden, including a national collection of tree quinces, and an ice house.Much of the architecture of the town is undistinguished, but there are listed buildings of some importance. The listed churches are All Saints Parish Church and Holy Trinity Church in the centre of the older part of the town, St Mary’s in Halton village, St John’s in Weston, and Christ Church in Weston Point. All Saints’ Church, a Grade II* listed building, dates from 1849 and was built by Anthony Salvin in red sandstone.[65] The oldest existing houses are the Seneschal’s House in Halton village (1598), Weston Old Hall (1607), Brookfield Farmhouse (1691), and Halton Old Hall (1693). Other outstanding houses include Runcorn Town Hall (formerly Halton Grange), Camden House and Cottage in High Street, and Bridgewater House near the Ship Canal.
