The Southern End of Warland Reservoir
The Southern End of Warland Reservoir
The Pennine Way above Littleborough runs alongside reservoirs that are among the earliest built in the North of England, including the Blackstone Edge, Light Hazzles and Warland reservoirs dating from the late eighteenth century. They were originally built (along with Chelburn and White Holme reservoirs) to supply water to the Rochdale Canal to ensure the flow of water in the canal, which is 600 feet above sea level at Summit. The five reservoirs, along with the water of Hollingworth Lake were jointly purchased from the Rochdale Canal Company by Rochdale and Oldham Corporations in 1923 (LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) Link4Life, Water Supply in Rochdale).
