Greenbooth and Naden Valley
Situated near Rochdale, four reservoirs make up this site. Naden Higher, Naden Middle, Naden Lower and Greenbooth reservoir. The Naden reservoirs, constructed in the mid-19th century preceeded the Greenbooth reservoir, with construction staring in 1958, submerging Greenbooth village in the process. A plaque on the dam wall commemorates the village.
The site offers spectacular views of Manchester, Yorkshire and the surrounding moorland and is a great escape all year round, providing a fantastic opportunity for bird watchers with spots including Egrets and Pallid Swift.
Offering a variety of walks, there is something for everyone, whether you are a seasoned hiker or looking for a couple of hours of fresh air with the kids.
