    Underground Reservoir, Clayton-le-Woods

    Visited with ViralEye

    Thanks to Toby for the lead!

    I've posted this as a permission visit because its open to the public for the next two weeks before it gets demolished to make way for new houses. If you want to see it, get your skates on!

    a bit of info from the LEP...
    The reservoir – constructed to hold about 300,000 gallons – was built in 1884 to provide storage for clean water for Leyland. It is the oldest and last surviving example of brick vaulted reservoir construction in the area.

    Most of the reservoir, which is on Back Lane, is below ground level and there is little above ground to show that it even exists.

    Chorley Historical and Archaeological Society tried unsuccessfully to save parts of the reservoir for posterity.

    Yessss! Fantastic pix Mr Oil! Beautiful! It doesn't look busy -- were many people there? I hope to get up there myself later in the week.

    It was heaving with people! Luckily it quietened down enough to get some (nearly) people free shots the week after next is school holidays so I suspect it may get a lot of kids visiting

    That's rather nice, Mr Snake. The reflective wet surfaces work very well
