Sutton Brook
Sutton Brook
Sutton Brook flows throughout Sutton and ultimately into the St Helens/Sankey Canal. The brook has been in existence for hundreds of years and for many years it was the dumping ground for much industrial and chemical waste which gave rise to foul odours for which it became notorious. During the nineteenth century, it was colloquially referred to as the 'Stygian' (ie dark and dismal) Brook and in more recent times it was known to St.Helens folk as 'Stinky' brook (LinkExternal link Sutton Beauty).
