Latest reviews | Events in St Helens | 10 Places to Stay

To be found in the North West of England St Helens was until recent times a village but its geographic location and communication links have helped the town grow in importance in the last 100 years. St Helens has a natural geology that provided coal, the fuel of the Industrial Revolution, and the local mineral deposits were exploited to the full leading to glass and copper also being produced in the area. The natural resources were there and to ensure its growth St Helens had to be able to transport the goods to the consumers and the Sankey Navigation Canal was conveniently located to accomplish this task. St Helens became the centre of the glass industry with many well known companies basing their operations in the town. Mining, brewing, glass manufacture and copper production provided a demand for a workforce and the towns rapid growth in population clearly demonstrates how successful the area was becoming. In the early 1800ís St Helens population stood at around 10,000 people, by 1900 it had grown to 125,000. Today the heavy industries on which St Helens based its success have all but gone however due to its unique location and transport links St Helens retains its importance and stature as a town that boasts a wide range of modern facilities with excellent road and rail links that are demanded and enjoyed by its residents.
