Jumbles Country Park
Jumbles Country Park lies within the Bradshaw Valley to the north of Bolton, good access is available on the east side of the reservoir from the A676 to Waterfold car park, where the information centre and café are located.
The valley and the surrounding area echo a long and interesting history of industrial activity based on textiles, a factor which has been fundemental in the development of the area for water catchment and storage. The country park was opened in 1971 following the construction of Jumbles reservoir, and has been popular with visitors and the local community ever since.
Jumbles information centre is open throughout the year, offering visitors a permanent exhibition on the local and natural history of the area, ideas for other places to visit in the West Pennine Moors and an insight into the water business. Refreshments are also available.
The recreation site facilities available at Jumbles Country Park include:
- Picnic area
- Dogs allowed
- Car parking
- Restaurant/ takeaway food
- Disabled toilet and baby change facilities available - RADAR key
- Some paths suitable for assisted wheelchair users.
And don't forget that reservoirs can be dangerous and the strongest swimmer can quickly get into serious trouble.
