Parkside Colliery was once the largest and most productive pit in the Lancashire coalfield. For almost thirty years it has sat derelict and empty, but now represents the largest opportunity to transform the economy of St Helens borough.

Parkside sits at the heart of the UK motorway network with its own link road to J22 of the M6 now under construction.

There are 5m people within half an hour’s drive. 13m within an hour. A perfect hub for regional, national and international logistics. And a perfect base for manufacturers looking for skilled workers in the cradle of UK manufacturing.
