Rivington Pike

Rivington Pike is one of the north of England's best viewpoints.  The historic tower is reputed to date as far back as far as 1138 and boasts breath-taking views of Rivington and beyond. 

A walk along the Anglezarke Reservoir is an easy ramble along the shore.  The Rivington Reservoirs are manmade (built between 1852 - 1857).  Remains of buildings covered by water can still be seen when water levels are low.  Explore the area around the reservoir by foot or bike and even through the treetops at Go Ape: Rivington.

Rivington Pike and the surrounding landscape provided a suitably dramatic location for A Monster Calls, released in 2017, staring Sigourney Weaver and Liam Neason as the voice of the monster.
