Parbold Hill gives magnificent views across the surrounding countryside and is always popular with visitors. A little below its summit stands a rough-hewn monument in the shape of a bottle. Although Parbold hill is a mere 130m above sea level, it does give views accross the plains of West Lancashire. We also visit Ashurst Beacon with its pyramid style roof was erected in 1798 by Lord Skelmersdale when invasion by Napoleon's forces was thought imminent. Solders were stationed here to light the beacon should it be necessary, we also visit the Fairy Glen close to the village of Appley Bridge.
