Have seen this from the M62 countless times but never visited. Enjoyed a walk, on the well maintained paths, up to the monument which was quite impressive. Managed to grab a Geo nearby too :)

As the title says, could be so much more. Starting with the positives the Dream itself looks great and the former colliery is now covered with trees and is part of the Mersey forest with some nice little walks. Unfortunately, this is where it ends...More
