Coal mine Pit head reconstruction at Sutton Manor, St Helens.

Welcome to a 3d reconstruction of the 2 Pitheads here at Sutton Manor, St Helens.

Between 1906 and 1991 this was a thriving coal mine.

Today nearly all traces of the colliery are gone.

It is now a community woodland and home to the landmark sculpture "Dream".

This sculpture by world-renowned artist Jaume Plensa, is putting St Helens on the map and attracting tens of thousands of visitors from near and far.

A celebration of the past, and an inspiration for the future.

Car parking is at the Smithy Manor Pub on Jubits Lane.

This is one of 3 layers available for the site, the others are:

Dream Audio Guide - listen to the miners telling what life was like when a coal mine stood here. Discover the story of the landmark sculpture "Dream" that now stands on the site.

Dream Toposcope - As you look out from the Dream site we will identify the visible landmarks.
