Explore Sutton Manor

Sutton Manor is a 230 acre site located in St Helens next to the M62 on the former Sutton Manor Colliery. At its highest point it is over 200m above sea level.

The Forestry Commission took over the lease in 2001 and transformed the former spoil heap into a community woodland and wildlife haven for the local community and visitors to enjoy, planting in total over 2 million trees.

In 2009, Jaume Plensa's Dream sculpture was officially opened as a lasting memory of the sites former use. It sits on the apex of the former spoil heap and can be seen from miles around.

The site also links in with the Farnworth Sutton Greenway. This is a footpath and cycleway that connects up Dream and Sutton Manor woodland with the outskirts of Widnes at Mill Lane.
