Audenshaw Reservoirs
Audenshaw Reservoirs
The Audenshaw Reservoirs are located between Audenshaw and Denton. Part of the original village of Audenshaw had to be demolished to make way for the construction of the three reservoirs by Manchester Corporation between 1877 and 1882.

The three reservoirs originally covered an area of 101.5 hectares, and had a total capacity of 5,500 cubic metres (1,200,000 imp gal). This was reduced however when Audenshaw Reservoir number 3 was partly filled in during the 1990s, to make way for the M60 motorway.

The reservoirs are currently maintained by United Utilities plc and are not open to the general public.
