Lower Rivington Reservoir

The southern end of the chain of reservoirs at Rivington, the Lower Rivington Reservoir features a castle on the Eastern shore and an outdoor centre with boating facilities on it’s Western shore.

Interestingly the filtration plant at the southern end of the reservoir was the biggest in the world when first constructed. There is now a modern water treatment plant in place of the old sand filter beds.

The Lower Rivington Reservoir was constructed by 1857 at which time the first water was supplied by underground pipe to Prescot.

Yarrow Reservoir

Yarrow Reservoir

Said to be the deepest, Yarrow Reservoir is often overlooked as one of the Rivington Reservoirs and to be fair it hasn’t easy access to the water but it does have interesting carvings.
