This blog is:
A living sketch book for the ideas generated during our Creative Halton Project in 2011. On this blog you will get to see the ideas as they pop up and see where the inspiration has come from. These are the ideas of the artists Beth Barlow and Jason Sheppard, informed by those we have spoken to. It has also grown to include the ideas sent to us by local residents . If you want to contribute please e mail

This blog is not:
A finished product. Many of the ideas here will be tested and seen to be the wrong for the place, time and its people. We hope that the ideas we take forward will be the correct ones, giving Runcorn a taste of its rich past, the positives in its present and notions about its future.

The Fred Kearsley Memorial walk

The Fred Kearsley Memorial walk takes place every year to raise money for Runcorn Linnets Football club. One of our event stories features Fred and we found this link to the walk map. If you know anything else about him we are trying to find out the furthest place he walked to and how long it took. Also did he say " Well you can start now, I'm here" on walking into the ground and wave his scarf or his hat. We need the info by this Friday, so pretty short notice. You can post your info here or e mail Beth at
