Lever Castle, Rivington, Lancashire - April 2013 - 04/14/2013

Not sure why I've not visited this place, well I had back around 1977 with my parents, its on the doorstep pretty much. Part of the old Lever Park, owned by Lord Leverhulme, this mini replica of Liverpool Castle was a unfinished project on the estate. Work commenced in only October 1911, but sadly abandoned following the death of Lord Leverhulme. Sitting on the banks of Lower Rivington Reservoir a little away from the main Rivington gardens, Pike and Barns, I'd just never been back despite regular visits walks up to Rivington Pike. Having flown over Lever Castle on a number of occasions of late, a gentle nudge by Judderman prompted a jump into car for a gentle spring walk down the leafy paths to the castle.  Sadly since my last distant visit steps to the upper levels have been removed, on the upside with the driveway closed to traffic the site is a cracking place to let the kids off the leash. The castle does have a few inner rooms and as the kids call them "secret passageways" for a little bit of an explore. Not so much Urbex but a nice little bimble with the kids, with apologies to the couple with the little boy as my daughters choice of clothing seemed to have caused "issues" as she came stumbling out of a dark passage.
