  • We went for some fresh air and decided to take a walk up to the Dream. The surrounding park/forest was lovely - really peaceful and great to have some fresh air. The paths are well kept and well sign ...  read more »
  • A lot of money went into building this sculpture however, during the design stage they should have stood back and looked at it from a distance and from this they may have noticed what a lot of people ...  read more »
  • the way up was covered in dog muck but the dream itself is stunning , the area surrounding the entrance is rough a boarded up pub even so I enjoyed the walk and the great views ,be sure to take water ...  read more »
  • Fabulous and serene. A brilliant example of what can be done with old industrial sites with good engagement of the local population. Well done to StHelens and all its residents. Could do with a bit more care and cleaning because of the "sad" few who leave used nappies and dog mess. But still well worth a visit.
  • Nightmare on the approaches. Litter and loads of used doggie bags hanging from the bushes and lay in the grass, excrement on the paths, plus rotting and wrecked benches. One star for the view away from the dump !
  • Took my two daughters here a early 2016. Large parkland, shame it's right next to the noisy motorway... Windy at the exposed monument. I think it would be lovely on a warm summer's day.
  • i live in eyesight of this and allways struggle to park outside my house at weekends , it is like being in a drem when you walk up to it the ammount of dog turds , not only on the floor but the trees seem to be growing nappy bags of dog turds . shame theres no disabled access ( vehicle) both my parents are disabled and probably wont ever get to see it as even a wheel chair wouldnt get up there . finaly im possibly the only person to have some amazing photos of it lit up , what a stupid design it was to run the cables through trunking in a recession , all the cableing now gone and the lights have been filled in , i belive its forrestry land now as they dont seem to care about maintenance or dog turd bins overflowing , whoever is in charge of the site needs to get it lit up again and get more bins up there , wont hold my breath on dissabled access as this government insist on disabled basshing .
  • Ex bex Towering and paper white this magnificent head has her eyes closed and is dreaming about you. If you go to this magnificent head you can say '' I've been there!''. There is lots of information about the mines and there is lots of beautiful views to look at. Go now and feel the magic! P.S R + L
