Start Point: Car park near school Grid Reference: SD 625 143
Distance: 4.2 miles Ascent: 870 feet
Time: 1.75 hours
Weather: Sunny and warm
Comments: A quick afternoon walk on a sunny September Saturday - along with the hundreds of others who had the same idea! I was able to find some less popular routes to reach Rivington Pike which was the busiest I have ever seen it.

Not usually walking beside this part of the reservoir . . .

I was surprised to see a few yachts . . .

with a lot of activity at the sailing club

Rivington Pike was very popular today . . .

and a cyclist had decided to join the walkers

Anglezarke and Upper Riivngton Reservoirs . . .

Lower Rivington Reservoir

It's diddicult to work out which parts are real and which are the reflections . . .

at the Japanese Gardens
