Light Hazzles  Reservoir
Light Hazzles Reservoir
Light Hazzles reservoir (along with Blackstone Edge, Warland, Chelburn and White Holme reservoirs) was one of the earliest built in the North of England. The reservoirs were originally built in the late-eighteenth century 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).
