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.
