    North of this dam is the upper Rivington Reservoir, the lower reservoir is to the south. There are also two more reservoirs to the north which form this chain of four reservoirs. Built between 1852 and 1857 the reservoirs provide water for the surrounding Wigan area although they were originally built to supply Liverpool.

  • There is a small footpath either side of the bridge that you can dismount to grab a photo, a drink or something to eat.

  • Awesome views and a great ride. For me it was a challenging climb and part of a 75 mile sportive. Decent from the top was a belter.

  • Loads of gravel, tarmac at everything fro. 0% -22%.

    Nice and quiet if you want to skip for the night, some dog Walkers get ther early
