Photo Competition Update!

Posted by on Oct 16, 2013 in Information, News, Photographs, Rivington | 2 comments

TweetFirstly, we have extended the competition entry date until 31st October to give everyone enough time to enter a photo into our Wildlife Competition. The competition has received significantly fewer entries than last year so we would like to clarify exactly what can be classed as a ‘Wildlife Photo’. We are making the competition as general as possible to allow as many people as possible to enter so by ‘Wildlife’ we mean most aspects of nature. We want the focus of the competition to be wildlife so pictures of trees, plants, animals, birds and fish are all great....

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...

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 Geocaching.com 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 RivingtonPike.com are sponsored...
