The residential neighbourhood of Castlefields was developed as part of the New Town Masterplan between 1968 and 1972 by the Runcorn Development Corporation to help alleviate overcrowding in Merseyside. Lauded at the time as the future of sustainable living, the development comprised 2400 homes of which 1400 were deck access flats.
