Route
Meet at the Great Barn Tea Rooms on Rivington Lane, Rivington Postcode BL6 7SB - Grid Ref SD 625 139. There is also ample free parking on Rivington Hall Drive which is located directly opposite the Barn. There are also toilet facilities located in the visitors center which is next to the barn

The aim of the walk is to link in with the group meeting talk on the 22 January with the walk starting with the Terraced Gardens of Rivington.
The circular route of approximately 10 miles will then take in a section of Redmonds Edge, Lead Mine Valley, Moor Lane and the Anglezark and Rivington reservoirs. Most of the walk will take place over good surfaces though there will be some wet and boggy sections in the area of Redmonds Edge which unfortunately cannot be avoided.
The walk will provide an ideal opportunity to see first hand the fantastic work which has been carried out to restore the gardens and also to take in some fantastic views from the elevated sections across the region.
