Been walking to Liverpool ‘castle’ since I was a young child living in Bolton, even now as an adult living in Chorley we occasionally, on a nice day, make the long walk there (with a number of pub stops haha). A hidden gem. Great for...More

Brilliant place to take children if taking a walk around Rivington. This replica castle can unleash childrens imaginations of times gone by and the bonus is its free no expensive enterance fees.

Small folly built by the Lever family on their estate. A nice walk and an interesting spot to spend 5 minutes, not worth a special journey unless you are going to take in the whole Rivington experience, which means alot of walking. If you like...More

Liverpool castle is one of my favourite quick walks. It can be a muddy walk in places. But once at the castle you can experience wonderful views over the reservoir. Has a child I used to walk all around the tops, very scary in places....More

The castle was built on the instruction of Lord Leverhulme. However, he died some months after work had started. In his honour no further building was done and it was left as it was. The castle is in a lovely area and has great views...More
