St Helens is a metropolitan borough in metropolitan county Merseyside in England . The administrative center is the city of the same name, St Helens , in which a little more than half of the population lives. Other significant places in the borough are Earlestown , Eccleston , Haydock , Newton-le-Willows and Rainford .

The reorganization of the borders and the competencies of the local authorities resulted in the formation of the Metropolitan Borough in 1974. The county borough of St Helens, the urban districts of Haydock, Newton-le-Willows and Rainford, parts of the urban districts of Billinge-and-Winstanley and Ashton-in-Makerfield and part of the Whiston Rural District were merged . These local authorities previously belonged to the county of Lancashire .

In 1986 St Helens became a de facto unitary authority when the central government dissolved the administration of Merseyside. St Helens remained part of Merseyside for ceremonial purposes , as well as for individual higher-level functions such as police , fire brigade and public transport.
