This is an alternative to our planned venue of Lyme Park, as we discovered that the national trust are now not accepting coaches into lyme park unless it is a booked visit to the hall and gardens. Alternative parking/dropping off on the boundaries of the park was investigated but none were found to be viable. Most people booked on the coach have been contacted and their approval obtained for this change, and we apologise to anyone who has not got the message! However, we are sure you will all have a good day at Rivington.
Moderate Leader: Jackie Gudgeon Distance: 9 miles
Today’s walk will be a circuit of the Rivington & Anglezarke Reservoirs, as far as White Coppice. Quite a varied walk with good views.
Leisurely/Easy Leader: Derek Lee Distance: 6 plus miles
We head for the castle before turning away from the reservoir and heading up to the Gardens – a steady 500 foot climb. We continue northwards round Yarrow Reservoir and alongside the Rivington Reservoirs back to Rivington.
