Plants in the Landscape

Ongoing work at Rivington Pike

Lots of work going on at Rivington Pike today, around the remains of Lord Leverhulme’s gardens. A great deal of vegetation has been removed, exposing the stonework of the lost structures. Top left picture is the ‘bungalow’ or ‘ballroom’ site, where just a few weeks ago a young birch woodland was finding a footing, amongst wild plants and garden escapes of all kinds.
