Mr H and the girls visit Billinge Hill also known as 'Billinge Lump' which was traditionally once part of Lancashire but is now in modern-day St Helens, Merseyside.

The hill today still features on it's summit an impressive 18th century tower measuring 19ft (5.79m) that was originally built as a summer house for use by the Bankes family of nearby Winstanley Hall and their friends in 1788. (Includes rare close-up video footage of the roof of the tower!)

The video also features Graffiti tags from 1907 onwards
