I've finally had a chance to take my camera out with me! So here are a few shots which I took yesterday as we had a walk up to a place called Rivington Pike on the West Penine Moors in Lancashire.

A good idea is to read web reports/blogs from American/Canadian/Aussie etc visitors to Britain to realise how much there is here and how much more visitors appreciate the many good aspects of life in Britain.

I'm not sure tbh, the only thing I know about Rivington Pike (thats the pic with the little castle type building on the hill) is that Freddie Flintoff (England cricketer) goes walking up there a lot when he's recovering from injury! lol. Not the best bit of info I know but thats about as far as my knowledge stretches on it.

There's quite a bit of info on it from here though: Link

It's a pigeon tower. The bigger the pigoen house, the more wealthy the owner - it's part of the Leverhulme estate - the ruins are set in the hills and at the bottom is an anglo saxon design barn which is used for functions now.

Cheers Louise,

Yeah I like Rivington, I go up there a lot to the barn etc, I used to have a motorbike before I went to Oz so I went to the barns on a Sunday with the bikers.

Its a lovely place. I knew someone would know more about it than me anyway, I have heard about the Leverhulme estate though now you mention it.

And if that same person lived in the States, not only would he not be able to afford 2 trips to Europe each year, he wouldn't have enough holiday time to go anywhere. :curse: Some people just don't see how good they've got it.

It certanly makes you apprecaite how good the UK actually is. So many people slate it but you only have to look at some of these pics to see otherwise

The colour of the grass for one.....!!

My thoughts exactly. Certainly makes you realise all of the things you took for granted when they were on the doorstep. I cant wait to get back in the new year and start exploring my own country all over again.
