Halton Castle is in the former village of Halton which is now part of the town of Runcorn, Cheshire, England.      Halton Castle stands on a prominent rocky hill overlooking the River Mersey. A location which must have been chosen for its "elevated position and excellent potential as an observation post". It was also an easily defensible site, a military stronghold capable of repelling attack.
