Colliers Moss Common

Mostly level, well surfaced paths.

St Helens Council: 01744 676789

This common was created on the spoil and waste from the Bold Colliery and Power Station. A diverse landscape with water features (including lagoons, streams, wetland areas and a fishery), focal points, artworks, seating areas and an amphitheatre all serve to make the whole site a beautiful and peaceful place to explore as well as an important habitat for wildlife. The widespread network of paths ensures good access for walkers, cyclists and horseriders.

The remnants of mossland around the fringes of the site have been restored and areas of sphagnum moss are expanding. The site supports a range of notable species including water vole, common lizard and 16 species of dragonfly including Blacktailed Skimmer and Emperor.

As a result of additional funding a car park has been created using recycled materials. The gateway and internal gates have been improved – the design of which was inspired by the cooling towers of the power station previously located on the Moss. A footpath has been constructed as well as new signs and a toposcope, with information on what visitors can view and where, have also been added to help people get the most out of the area. As a result of the improvements half of the site has been designated as a Local Nature Reserve.

Colliers Moss Common is part of Bold Forest Park.
