RIVINGTON 30A - The Pigeon Tower, Lever Park
The Pigeon Tower in Lever Park, Rivington, Lancashire.
The Pigeon Tower has four storeys, each a single room. On the west side is a semi-circular stair turret with a conical roof. The fourth storey, Lady Leverhulme's sewing room, has four light mullioned windows on two sides and houses an ornate fireplace engraved with the initials of William Heskth and Elizabeth Ellen Lever above the family motto, MUTARE VEL TIMERE SPERNO - "To change or to fear I spurn". The second and third storeys were a dovecote and on the west wall are square pigeon holes with perching ledges.
