Caption for Rivington, The Barn C1955:
This splendid barn was built as storage for hay. When Lord Leverhulme, the Sunlight Soap king, bought Hall Barn and Great House Barn he had them renovated as public refreshment rooms. The only original components left of this ancient barn are its oak cruck supports. The area near Chorley has Bronze Age burial sites on the moors, indicating that it has been a settlement from ancient times. Like the one on Pendle Hill, the beacon on top of Rivington Pike is thought to have been lit when the Spanish Armada approached in 1588.
