High Bullough Reservoir, Anglezarke

I went to Anglezarke this afternoon to walk around High Bullough Reservoir, that is just above the much larger Anglezarke Reservoir. High Bullough Reservoir was the first of the local reservoirs to be built and was originally built to supply water to the nearby town of Chorley (in fact it was for a time called Chorley Reservoir), but has long since been disconnected from the water supply system and is now a small nature reserve.
