How Do I Get To The Clock Face Country Park?

New Street Bridge
By Rail - St.Helens Junction Station on the Liverpool to Manchester line is one mile away. Lea Green Station is two miles away.

By Bus - Nos. 32A, 122, 141, 339 (Wheatacre buses: 141, 329, 339).

By Road - If travelling by car enter via Gorsey Lane. A fair sized car park is available although there is a barrier preventing access to high vehicles over 2 metres. The gate to the car park is opened at 8am each day and locked at 6pm from October to March and at 9pm from April to September. The aerial image below, which was photographed for Sutton Beauty & Heritage, shows Gorsey Lane on the left with vehicular (and pedestrian) access into the country park.
By Foot - Pedestrian access can be made from Bold Road via a footpath by a farmer's field and from the Abbotsfield Road industrial estate. Both make for a very pleasant walk into the country park across Gorsey Lane. You can also walk into the park from the Sutton Manor Woodland by simply crossing Clock Face Road. In fact Sutton Manor Woodland, Clock Face Country Park, Wheatacre, Maypole and Griffin Wood are all in such close proximity, that they can easily be combined into an enjoyable morning or afternoon walk.

Accessibility of the Clock Face Country Park and Maypole Wood

Accessibility of Clock Face Country Park and Maypole Wood
The Clock Face Country Park has good accessibility for those with mobility impairments. There's wide, well kept paths throughout the site which can easily accommodate wheelchair users although there are some challenging gradients. Either ingress via Clock Face Road or, if arriving by car, use the main Gorsey Lane entrance. The entry higher up Gorsey Lane by Maypole Wood should be avoided, however, as it will not accommodate wheelchair users. This is unfortunate as it facilitates easy access for the able-bodied from the country park into Maypole Wood. The latter is largely flat and has excellent accessibility throughout. There are many benches in the country park as well as in Maypole Wood.
