Enjoyable visit to the abandoned Lever Park, Rivington. Breif history:

'Lever Park on the east bank of the Lower Rivington reservoir is named after William Lever, Lord Leverhulme,who bought the estate in 1899 and gifted 360 acres land to the people of his native Bolton as a public park. The park opened in 1904 and contained a boating lake, a zoo, tree lined avenues and a network of footpaths a Japanese lake and pagoda, Italian-style gardens, a seven arched bridge and various buildings and structures. The site has been left abandoned since the 1920s, and now lies in a state of decay amidst heavy trees and shrubbery'

Re: Lever Park, Rivington - Abandoned Gardens

It's a great place isn't it. I did some night shots here not so long ago. Worth a wander if you're ever in the area.
