07/09/2010 - Great hill with fantastic view not that I saw it as the day we went the cloudbase was very low. Nice hillfort covering summit with good access from the west. More folklore about this hill than you can shake a stick at.

The inner rampart was probably the earliest phase of construction dating from the late Bronze Age, but the date of the outer rampart is unclear. It is suggested that the whole site continued to be occupied into the early Iron Age. Rivington Pike Posted by Rivington Pike
