Accessibility of Sherdley Park in Sutton:

Accessibility of Sherdley Park
Generally good. The steepest gradient in the park is 1 in 20. Much of the woodland is inaccessible for wheelchair users but otherwise the paths are fairly easy to manoeuvre. This is Merseytravel's advice:

'Wheelchair users will need assistance in leaving and getting onto trains at Lea Green as the train steps are about eight inches above platform level. The hardest part of this route is presented by the ramps from the platforms,which are twenty feet below road level. The route to Sherdley Park is entirely wheelchair friendly, all on tarred surfaces and should be accessible without assistance. Ramps lead up to a wide pavement at Lea Green Merseyrail Station. Turn left alongside the main St Helens Road (A569); there’s a footpath sign for Sherdley Park here. Cross the drop-kerb crossings at the traffic lights and continue beside the road, the path shortly bending away into Sherdley Park. Trace this for 200 yards to the old park entrance gateposts. Turn left here, ignore the wider roadway and then keep left at the fork.'


TOILETS are available in Pets Corner, the Cafe in the Park and for Bull & Dog pub customers. Sherdley Park's parkland is well maintained by the council’s Parks and Gardens Department and very well managed by the Rangers.
