Withins Reservoir

Withins1Smaller than the nearby Elton Reservoir, Withins Reservoir is, possibly, more ‘natural’ looking. A favourite with fisher-folk this lake once stored water for the East Lancashire Paper Mill.The mill is long-gone but its water tank survives as a picturesque local OOPART. To get to Radcliffe the water from this reservoir is culverted under the Bury and Bolton Canal at Radcliffe.
