Friday 8 February

Lovely day for walking.

I had a walk over Rivington with Sue & dogs, I had forgotten just how beautiful it is around there.
People come to see the Chinese gardens that William Lever later to become Lord Leverhulme  had built - he also built a Bungalow and the Pigeon Tower. He was born in Bolton and  is life was very interesting.

 Paths like this all over the area.

Take Care


  1. Rivington Barn bring back happy memories of the Saturday night dances in the early 1960's.

  2. Now that's funny because while we were there we talked about the dances - Sue being from Chorley was saying they use to run coaches and then a taxi home, I did visit the Barn on the odd Saturday night. We both had a look in side and it was like stepping back in time.

      I remember going to Rivington Barn in the 60s - great dances, rarely any trouble but how we drove home to Fylde Coast some nights I will never know! Before drink driving laws came in of course. Not been back since but plan nostalgic return


Let me know you looked in :)
