aerial photograph of Rivington Pike Tower Lancashire UK .Grade II listed Rivington Pike Tower was built in 1733 on the site of a beacon built in the 12th century. The beacon was built to warn of raids from Scotland but was also lit in 1588 to warn of the Spanish Armada. The 18th century tower was built as a hunting lodge. By the 20th century it was in such poor condition that demolition was planned. Fortunately it was rescued and made structurally sound. Today it is a popular resting point for walkers where it offers spectacular views over Lancashire
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
