The Path Down From Rivington Pike
The Path Down From Rivington Pike
It is said that on a clear day you can see Blackpool Tower, and even the Isle of Man from here. The weather on this day was fine but hot and hazy, which has reduced visibility. Looking southwards, The town of Horwich (1,5 miles) and the Reebok Stadium (3 miles) can be seen clearly, the Wingates Industrial estate (4.5 miles) can also be distinguished, but after that everything is hidden in the haze.
