Sankey Valley Park was created between St Helens and Spike Island at Widnes (close to Runcorn-Widnes Bridge), via north and west Warrington (Winwick, Callands, Dallam, Bewsey, Sankey and Fiddlers Ferry).

The engineer was Henry Berry who was the Liverpool's Second Dock Engineer.
It occupies part of the Sankey Valley and the main section of the park in Warrington covers over 1 miles between Sankey Bridges in the south and Callands in the north.
