Walking Log ... Walks including "Chew Reservoir"


Chew Reservoir
Chew is a reservoir situated in the north western corner of the Peak District on Saddleworth Moor. It sits at a considerable height, and was built with considerable effort. Tons and tons of clay had to be transported all the way up the Chew valley to line it and make it water-tight.

Completed in 1912 and at 488m height, it held the record of being the highest reservoir in England until it was finally surpassed in 1971 (by Cow Green Reservoir, Teesdale).
