Location of Sutton Manor Woodland / Dream
The Sutton Manor Woodland is located in the south of Sutton in St.Helens on the site of the old Sutton Manor Colliery and is sandwiched between Jubits Lane, Gartons Lane, Clock Face Road and the M62. The main access points are by the old NCB gates and by the M62 road bridge near the Smithy Manor pub - both in Jubits Lane. There is also access from Clock Face Road, directly opposite the Clock Face Country Park via Miner's Way. Since the installation of Jaume Plensa's Dream sculpture in the woodlands in 2009, there are now large numbers of road signs all over the borough of St.Helens which direct visitors to the site.

By Foot - Pedestrian access can be made from Bold Road via a footpath by a farmer's field and from the Abbotsfield Road industrial estate. Both make for a very pleasant walk into the country park across Gorsey Lane. You can also walk into the park from the Sutton Manor Woodland by simply crossing Clock Face Road. In fact Sutton Manor Woodland, Clock Face Country Park, Wheatacre, Maypole and Griffin Wood are all in such close proximity, that they can easily be combined into an enjoyable morning or afternoon walk.

Accessibility of Sutton Manor Woodland / Dream

New Street Bridge
Considerable improvements have been made to the Sutton Manor Woodland during 2010 and 2011 to improve accessibility for visitors with mobility impairments. The nearest level access is adjacent to the Smithy Manor pub in Jubits Lane, where what's known as an 'A-frame gate' has been installed. This allows access for wheelchairs and some mobility scooters. Much of the pathways are of a gentle gradient, however, if you wish to visit Dream, the gradient level increases to the top of the hill and wheelchair users will require assistance. This used to be the site of Sutton Manor Colliery's spoil heap and is about 200 feet above sea level. If you are a very slow walker, you should allow as much as twenty minutes to get to the very top. All of the track is now a fine gravel surface and there are benches for resting along the way.
