Get’s Goat Part Two!

Posted by on May 18, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Tweet Hi all… Further to my other post about things getting my goat, well there’s more. I ventured up onto Winter Hill, on what was a rather breezy Sunday morning, just out for a few hours to help with the lager excess from the night before. Made my way onto Belmont Road heading for Noon Hill, and the ridge path up to the “aerial farm” @ Winter Hill summit. In the distance I could see and hear some prat with his off road motorbike tearing up the hillside! Now given the signage that has appeared regarding the use of mechanically propelled vehicles, within the access...

Really Gets My Goat!

Posted by on May 26, 2014 in Blog | 1 comment

TweetMonday 26/05/2014. Decided to take a walk, as it has been a while since I last ventured to Winter Hill. I was shocked is all I can say, at the wanton vandalism and disregard for our favourite area. New fencing damaged, disgarded building rubble, old BBQ’s with food still attached, and the removal of stone work, no doubt for someone’s patio. We are free to walk and cycle and enjoy the Rivington and Winter Hill area, because the land owner allows us to, ie it’s access land. Having witnessed the damage and distruction, how much longer will the landowner put up with the...

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.

Gregory’s Farm Adlington

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...
