Site for the new "Saints" Stadium
Site for the new "Saints" Stadium
Under demolition, the former United Glass plant at Peasley Cross....another example of the changing landscape of a town famous for its glass industry.
This 46 acre site is the chosen location for the new St Helens Rugby League Stadium to replace the current Knowsley Road ground.
A ground capacity of 18,000 is planned and the club are aiming to play their first game there during 2010. The site has much improved access compared to the old ground, being ideally located for a quick getaway via the link road onto the M62, whilst still being fairly close to the Town Centre buses and trains.
The only building which will remain is the Grade 2 listed building in the NW corner of the site, known as the Cannington Shaw No. 7 Bottle Shop.
