750 The Dream

Some say it looks like a giant mushroom, others make more vulgar comparisons, but there's no denying that The Dream, rising high above the trees beside the M62, catches everyone's attention. This is the centrepiece for an attractive Country Park where couples and families stroll in the sun and, it seemed to us, all the dogs are remarkably well behaved. It's one of those places that somehow you don't expect to find and, while it once needed a leap of faith to set off into the unknown, there's now a car park in just the right place. And here you get two for the price of one, for this walk joins The Dream to the woods and pools of Clockface Country Park.
