The highest point for miles and just short of a mountain, Winter Hill is a key part of the West Pennine Moors and a habitat for a huge range of wildlife. With evidence of occupation going back literally thousands of years there is plenty of history on and under the hill. Winter Hill was also the site of a historic mass trespass that gave us open access to much of the moorland today.
The Japanese Lake was the centre-piece of Leverhulme’s Japanese Garden. A tranquil lake with ornamental lanterns and a pagoda in mock-Japanese style, a bridge reminiscent of the famous Willow Pattern and waterfalls over a man-made rock wall with small caves.
