Rivington Pike

Rivington Pike sits on on the skyline above Horwich on the edge of Winter Hill and provides a distinctive focal point, visible from a wide arc around it. Marshalling on the Two Lads fell race last week gave me an excuse to be on Winter Hill without having to run and to watch the evening sky develop a sunset behind the Pike. Earlier, before the race, the clouds produced some dramatic skies above the Pike and over the Lancashire Plain.

  1. Lovely photos, good to be reminded just how beautiful it is around Rivington. Gets easy to take it for granted just because it's right on our doorstep.

  2. Thanks. Every now and again I find myself around Rivington remembering how fortunate we are to have it all just there.
