Rivington

Rivington really is the jewel in the crown of the majestic West Pennine Moors. The village and its beautiful countryside sit on the lower flanks of Winter Hill.  Unbelievably, the top of Winter Hill was once at sea level covered in lush tropical forest.  At the turn of the century William Hesketh Lever, of Lever Brothers washing powder fame, spent some of his fortune on buying the whole manor and created the 'false' ruin of Liverpool Castle and of course the Terraced Gardens.  Your journey is a double loop along the leafy tree lined trails, making the most of the spectacular scenery and iconic landmarks.
