Keckwick is a village near Runcorn in Cheshire, England. It borders on Daresbury and parts of Warrington.
A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Keckwick from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "KEKEWICK, or KECKWICK, a township in Runcorn parish, Cheshire; on the Northwestern and the Chester and Manchester railways, and on the Bridgewater canal, 4½ miles SW of Warrington. Acres: 522. Real property, £886: Population: 115. Houses: 12. The manor belongs to Sir Richard Brooke, Bart."
Keckwick was a township until 1936 and a civil parish from 1866 (when civil parishes were first established) until 1936. In 1936 it was absorbed by the neighbouring parish of Daresbury. Prior to 1936 it was part of the Runcorn Registration District and the Runcorn Rural District (1894-1936). (Source:A Vision of Britain through Time)
