Site & Community

Both the site and the local community have been pivotal to the development and creation of Dream.


The Sutton Manor site thanks to its rich human and industrial heritage as a former colliery, its new forest setting, and its prominent location beside one of the UK's busiest motorways, plus its views across Cheshire and Lancashire to Snowdonia and the Peak District.


The Sutton Manor community in terms of the extensive involvement of the ex-miners and other local volunteers in commissioning the artist and informing the concept.


This section is therefore dedicated to both, providing a brief history of the site plus an overview of community engagement activities, together with a gallery of associated images.
