RIVINGTON 32A - Liverpool Castle, Rivington Pike and Winter Hill
Rivington Pike and the Winter Hill television mast from Liverpool Castle in Lever Park, Rivington, Lancashire.
This folly, a replica of Liverpool Castle was commissioned by Lord Leverhulme in 1912. The original castle stood in Liverpool city centre where the statue of Queen Victoria now stands. William Lever's intention was to reconstruct the castle to its state prior to demolision, but work stopped in 1925 when he died.
