Sankey Valley Country Park forms part of the Netwon Heritage trail which can be followed from Castle Hill in Newton-le-Willows, through the Country Park and back to Castle Hill on a loop walk. The Sankey Valley Country Park is also a continuous link from St.Helens town centre, through Warrington and on to Spike Island at Widnes. Along with the natural environment aspects of the Country Park, the Valley also has some of the most important historical landmarks found within St.Helens, some of which can be viewed elsewhere on this web site.
