Stonepit Reservoir

Stonepit Reservoir was a private hidden gem on Back Bower Lane. Almost totally surrounded by trees, it was practically impossible to see. You could get a glimpse of it if you peered through these gates.

According to a small notice the land was lost to the Tameside Federation of Anglers in February. Over 6000 fish were transferred to a reservoir at Dinting near Glossop and paid-up members can now go there to fish.

The land was a haven for wildlife. I dread to think how it will look in six months time.

[Later edit - early suspicions that the land had been sold for development were without foundation as later posts reveal]
