Elton Reservoir
Elton Reservoir
A large reservoir to the southwest of Bury. Home of Bury Angling Association and Elton Sailing Club. The reservoir is owned by British Waterways and was built to serve as a feeder for the Manchester Bolton & Bury Canal. The reservoir (opened in 1842) was constructed because the local mill owners feared that taking water directly from the nearby River Irwell to supply the canal would result in a water shortage.
