Sunday Motorbike Photography at Rivington Barn

Please allow up to 5 working days for any purchases from the website
Located alongside the imposing Rivington Hall, at the heart of Rivington Country Park, the magnificent Grade II listed Rivington Hall Barn is one of the North West’s most impressive and unique venues for weddings, social and corporate events.
The Barn is approximately 4 miles from junction 6 on the M61, 8 miles from Bolton and is easily reached from Manchester and all parts of the North West.
Rivington Barn is the perfect setting for any occasion. The impressive structure, which is of Saxon origin, and the grounds of Rivington Hall offer a unique location for every type of event from weddings and celebration parties to formal and business functions.
