Weston or Weston Village has been since 2009 a settlement in the Halton unitary authority of Cheshire, England. Formerly a separate village, it is now part of the town of Runcorn. Weston overlooks the River Mersey and a large chemical plant.

Weston ceased to be a civil parish when it was absorbed into Runcorn in 1936.

Weston-Point or Weston Point (redirected here) is the location of the Port of Runcorn--a long historical article in Wikipedia.

It includes Weston Point chapelry; and it has a church, a Wesleyan chapel, a national school, extensive freestone quarries, extensive chemical works, spacious wet docks, and a branch mineral railway to Runcorn.
