SJ5294 : Sutton Brook Greenway

taken 11 years ago, near to Sutton Leach, St Helens, Great Britain

Sutton Brook Greenway
Sutton Brook Greenway
St Helens is criss-crossed with these "greenways", other examples being the Sankey Valley Park, the Ravenhead Greenway and the Newton Greenway. In addition to providing natural habitat corridors within the urban area, they provide good walking and cycling short cuts.
The image shows Gaskell Street crossing the Sutton Brook Greenway with the brook itself flowing under the road bridge to join the Sankey Brook and eventually the River Mersey.
Sutton Brook was also known locally as "Stinky Brook", a result of historical pollution from the local chemical industry.
