Sorry to have to say this, but I was in the area last week and decided to visit Hatton's place. Coming from the Ellesmere Port direction the satnav pointed us to the old Runcorn Bridge. Having prepaid the toll of £2, approached the bridge to find it.......closed! It was on Sunday, and maybe that's normal. It did mean a detour over the new bridge which added a few extra miles to Hatton's but we did finally arrive. Have to say the shop was a disappointment, very little on show and not a large range. Now I appreciate they're main thrust is mail order and I suspect if I was looking for something specific the staff could have looked it up on their computer and got it from the warehouse, but for someone who just wants to browse, it was a disappointment.
Whatever you do in future, don't make my mistake of driving over the new bridge and thinking it's free because there's no-one in a box collecting money.
I did this in the first week it was open, and three weeks later received a Penalty Notice from Halton Council, for £20 plus the original £2. I hadn't realised that as a casual user you need to go on line to pay the toll within 24 hours of using the bridge. Duh!!!
