None

Venue for the 2002 Commonwealth Games outdoor cycling events. With its rugged hills, picturesque reservoirs and woodland Rivington is Chorley's mini Lake District, with a natural beauty to rival the real thing. The famous Rivington Pike, an ancient beacon to warn of invasion, is a landmark that dominates the local landscape.
However, what makes Rivington different is the influence of Lord Leverhulme, founder of Lever brothers, who created a number of unique landscape features such as, the Japanese Terraced Garden on the Northwest slopes of the Pike is a beautiful real life secret garden and the Replica of the ruined Liverpool Castle.
