Walk 3: Two Faces of Rivington

Horwich - Lever Park - Rivington - Dean Wood - Lever Park - Horwich

The very popular walking area of Lever Park was laid out by the 1st Lord Leverhulme. The southern loop of this walk, of about 3 miles, offers easy walking along wooded tracks and paths in the park, while the northern loop, about 3.5 miles in length, takes you over rougher country on the fringe of moorland outside the park, with views as far as the Clwydian Hills in North Wales if you are lucky.

To combine the two loops into a figure-of-8 would produce a walk of 6.5 miles or, if you start and finish in Horwich, that would add an extra mile. And, if you went to look at the gardens which surrounded Lord Leverhulme's bungalow, that would add more to the distance.
