Rivington, 7th October 2020

Rivington is a small Lancashire village. In 1902 Lord Leverhulme, who rose from relatively humble beginnings to become the co-founder of Sunlight soap, bought 364 acres of land near the village and constructed an elaborate park. He then donated this to the local people. It contains beautiful terraced and Japanese gardens which were incorporated into a hillside. It's a steep climb but the views over the local countryside are spectacular.

This waterfall was once part of the Japenese Garden.

In one small area were a number of moving tributes to family members who were deceased.

This is Rivington Hall where the Lord of the Manor once lived.

This is a one of two huge barns which date back to medieval times. They are now restaurants.
