Rivington Pike & Anglezarke Reservoir

Anglezarke Reservoir – Great Hill – Spitler’s Edge – Rivington Pike – Lever Park – Anglezarke Reservoir

Join us for one of the most rewarding walks on the West Pennine Moors offering arguably the best views in Lancashire from the lofty summit of Great Hill.

Our route skirts the pretty wooded fringes of Anglezarke Reservoir before climbing steadily up onto the moors to reach the top of Great Hill, where the views extend over much of the northwest of England to Snowdonia, The Isle of Man and the Lakeland Fells.

We then cross the moors on an airy trek over a flagstone path, arriving at Rivington Pike before descending back to the reservoir via Rivington Country Park.

At the end of the walk we’ll head to a nearby public house for some well deserved refreshments.
