Plaque on the beacon declares this was presented to Wigan Corp. 1962. However, it seems to be a Grade II listed structure dating from 1798.

Very easy walk from the south fine wide ranging views today.For years in this area a local man Kevin Ashurst was at the top of world match fishing thought this may be a tribute to him but it isn't!

Started from Dalton, passing through Roby Mill to Dean Wood, then onto Gathurst and along the Leeds Liverpool Canal To Appley Bridge, then onto the fantastic viewpoint of Ashurst’s Beacon and a visit to the pillar of Alma Field

Good view spot, topograph close by. Looks like a church spire from a distance and can be seen on the ridge line for quite a way away. It also seems to be a popular spot for local Duke of Edinburgh's students, who were surrounding it today as a stop-off point on their trek.

Somebody has carved Clisham into the north(?) wall of the beacon. I wonder what the chances are that they had come all the way to here from Harris?

Ashurst's Beacon 172 metres high and a P59 hill. The beacon once formed part of a relay league stretching from Everton Brow above Liverpool to Lancaster Castle, which was in place (though unused) during the Anglo–Spanish War of 1585. The current structure dates from around 1800, when local landowner Sir William Ashurst decided that a more permanent beacon was needed for the oncoming Napoleonic Wars. Photo on Geograph.
