Hi Karen Do you mind me asking where exactly the summit is? We've got a trip planned there with family (who are travelling a long way) this weekend but am a little unclear of exact location/satnav etc. Also, we've got my elderly mum (84) who won't be able to walk that far so anywhere to park? #thanks v much. X
there is disabled parking if you have a blue badge you can drive to the summit if your near wigan you can always contact me on 07484 260 698 if you need further help as we could drive up to the summit with you
Are the footpath/routes clearly marked.
The footpaths are obvious but if you are expecting signposts or trail markers then no there aren't many at all. It doesn't really warrant it really though because the Pike is almost always visible and Winter Hill beyond it are easily visible so getting lost is almost impossible.
Is Rivington open again? 2 weeks ago the paths up from the top barn were still closed after the fires.
all paths are availlable but there are the remains of tape and so on but really the fire is out as the rain has ended the concerns of re firing and its all good to go. its a bit black and charred if you go far enough but there are signs of green regrowth fortunately. worth a visit to watch the stages of renewal seeing which plants take advantage of the lack of competition.
Are all dogs banned this weekend at Rivington Pike due to Alabama Rot??
Is there a path for wheelchair use
there is no definitive wheelchair access but greater access can be enjoyed if you drive to the upper car park on the road going over the moors due east from the barn which is quite high up with good views and plenty of space for any vehicles. from there its a surfaced track that runs up and around and through the park and its wooded areas. i think it leads around past the old toliets and then along to the south for access to properties but there is no way you can go off this much apart from a piece of the gardens and it may be possible and def worth a try if you are accompanied. there are gradients bit not unmanageable with help so def worth a try ditto for prams really.
Is there live stock on the walk. Want to do this walk with my dogs but being sheep dogs I can't let them off lead around sheep/cows. Thanks
yes through one key area there is usually livestock so leads are advisable don't hesitate though its only on short strech towards the beginning of the climb of the pike where it takes you to the upper gardens from the lower drives where the castle and such is
There are plenty of hotels and B&B's , Horwich is a lovely little town with pubs and places to eat, there is also middlebrook shopping retail park , google places to stay in Horwich but there's premier inns an an holiday inn ... sorry for the delay in response
