Wildlife Photo Competition Entry

TweetLast year we ran our first Photography Competition and due to its popularity we are running another one. This year the competition topic is to be Rivington Wildlife; this is a fairly general title which will allow an opportunity for more photos to be entered. We would like the photos to have been taken in the local area e.g. Rivington Pike, Winter Hill, Anglezarke e.t.c. as this is a competition. The winner will have their photo enlarged to canvas by our competition sponsor Mathers of Lancashire who will also be offering 50% off all canvas printing in conjunction...

Adlington Circular Walk

Posted by on Jul 7, 2013 in Admin Post, Blog, Intermediate, Photographs, rivingtonpike, Walk | 0 comments

TweetI decided to make the most of the sun today and head out for a walk. There is an Adlington Circular Walk signposted around however this is instead the ‘ Adlington Circular Walk’. Not necessarily better; just different. This is a great walk to go on if you live in Adlington and want a fair length walk without the terrain of going up Rivington. It takes in the sights of Upper and Lower Adlington, a stretch to the Leeds to Liverpool Canal as well as Anderton and the edge of Rivington. Below is a map showing the walk.

TweetIf you head up Rawlinson Lane in Adlington you will come onto Bolton Road, if you turn right and continue going for a hundred metres or so there will be a turning on your left which takes you to a farm which I believe to be called Gregory’s Farm. Although it doesn’t look like it, there is actually a public footpath running through the farm which takes you up by Chorley Golf Course. If you like Geocaching there are also a few to be found around this...

Walks Through Adlington

Posted by on Jun 10, 2013 in Entry Level, Information, Walk | 0 comments

TweetI have lived in Adlington for around 5 years now and only recently have I discovered some of the rural walking and cycling routes which Adlington has. I discovered the area through and I will be sharing some of the walks over the next few weeks. The area is in between Chorley Road (Adlington top road), Babylon lane, Long lane and Chorley Golf Course. They provide some good views of Rivington as well as serving as a short cut to reach the Rivington area. Walks on are sponsored...
