Subject: RE: Folklore: Egg rolling, Rivington Pike, Easter Mon
Could have been a diease, Will, but I think the only thing left in any numbers for a long time have been rhodedendrons. It was more the paths and masonry that were in a worse state than I remember. Still pretty damned impressive though. I was re-watching the Lord of the Rings films last week and parts where people (and Hobbits!) were wandering though old ruins in various parts I was reminded of Rivington and the Ruined castle on the reservoir. I think my liking for fantasy works stems from exploration of many old ruins when I was a lad:-)
